Obstetric Anesthesiology

The Rutgers Health Obstetric Anesthesiology practice provides full-time coverage for the labor and delivery suite at University Hospital in Newark, NJ. Our anesthesiologists serve high-risk patients and provide labor epidurals and anesthesia for all Caesarian sections.

Our practice performs over 2,000 deliveries per year, including about 700 Caesarian sections. Our team is ready to meet the increasing demand for the use of local anesthesia during labor and delivery, and we collaborate with obstetricians to provide safe and pain-free deliveries.

The physicians in our practice are on the faculty of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, a part of Rutgers University, one of the top research institutions in America. Most are active in teaching and research, and each brings life-changing knowledge from the classroom to the exam room.

If you or a loved one will be giving birth at University Hospital in Newark, the Rutgers Obstetric Anesthesiology practice will be on site to provide outstanding care.
