Message from the Chair

Matthias Eikermann, MD, PhD
Chair, Department of Anesthesiology
Professor, Department of Anesthesiology
The Department of Anesthesiology at Montefiore Einstein is dedicated to advancing the fields of medicine and surgery. As a partner across the health system, particularly in perioperative and periprocedural care, we are in a unique position to align efforts and make the system more effective.

We are a hub for integrated care. We collaborate with surgery and medicine to ensure equitable care is provided consistently and effectively. We ensure good data-based decisions are made every day in the OR, the ICU, the Pain clinic, and the procedural suites of medicine. And we help patients get the treatment that best serves their needs.

Through research and innovation, Montefiore Einstein Anesthesiology creates and implements new science of perioperative medicine. Through mentorship, intensive research training and education, we are developing future leaders in research. We support our researchers at every stage of their process, from idea generation through study completion and publication.

Consistent with this goal, our Anesthesiology faculty and trainees are actively involved in the execution and leadership of a wide array of ongoing clinical research quality improvement projects.
