Our sub-specialized obstetrics and women's care anesthesiologists trained at many of the best hospitals in the country according to U.S. News and World Report, including Massachusetts General Hospital - Harvard University. We strive to extend this world-class care to the patients and hospitals we are privileged to serve. Our team has been providing obstetric anesthesia to Florida Hospital’s labor and delivery units for more than 25 years. This service has grown to include more than 8,000 deliveries a year at four campuses - Orlando, Altamonte, Celebration and Winter Park.
A JLR anesthesiologist and certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA) are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year at the hospitals we serve, offering pain relief for laboring patients, most commonly in the form of epidural analgesia. In rare medical situations, where it would be unsafe to place an epidural or spinal, we administer intravenous pain medications. The vast majority of Cesarean sections are performed under spinal or epidural anesthesia so that the laboring mother can enjoy cherished memories of the birth of her newest family member.
Our obstetrics and women's care anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists also serve expectant moms throughout the community, making presentations about epidurals, coordinating with boutique women's care centers and integrating our services into individual birth plans.
