Neonatal & Pediatric Anesthesia. This is one of the most challenging aspects of our surgery day. These patients are typically very small and the risks of anesthesia are high. Here is Katie with Nixon - her technical expertise and training in our tiny patients is invaluable to our success in microsurgery. We not only have the opportunity to anesthetize these tiny patients regularly, we pride ourselves in the having the latest techniques, equipment, and staff ready to ensure the care of your tiny pets.
