Nurse Anesthetists

Our department is home to a dedicated team of Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) who play a pivotal role in the delivery of anesthesia care. With a commitment to patient safety and comfort, these CRNAs bring a wealth of expertise and experience to the operating rooms, procedural suites, and various clinical settings within the healthcare system. They work collaboratively with anesthesiologists, surgeons, and other healthcare professionals to ensure optimal outcomes for patients undergoing surgical and interventional procedures. Utilizing their advanced skills in anesthesia administration, airway management, and pain control, CRNAs at Pitt and UPMC demonstrate a steadfast dedication to providing high-quality care while upholding the highest standards of professionalism and clinical excellence.
