Neuro Anesthesia Rotation
The rotation in neuroanesthesiology gives residents extensive experience in the care of patients undergoing a wide variety of neurosurgical procedures. In addition, neurosurgical emergencies occurring during on-call time represent a substantial portion of our non-elective cases. The Department of Neurological Surgery at the University of Virginia is comprised of world-renowned individuals who attract patients from a world-wide referral base. Our annual caseload of neurosurgical procedures is approximately 2,200.
The particular strengths of our institution include cerebrovascular surgery, craniobasal and craniofacial surgery, benign and malignant intracranial tumors, transsphenoidal pituitary surgery, stereotactic procedures, spinal surgery, and epilepsy surgery. The University of Virginia also has state of the art facilities for all types of neuroradiology, including a gamma knife and the newest MRI equipment. UVA's interventional radiologists are at the cutting edge of the specialty. On the neuroanesthesia rotation, you will be a part of the team at one of the country's finest institutions for the care of patients with neurological disease.
