Fellowship in Regional Anesthesia & Acute Pain Medicine, Fairfield Division


Become a specialist in regional anesthesia, acute pain medicine, and orthopedic anesthesia.

Fellowship Primary Locations

Our two primary hospitals, St. Vincent’s Medical Center and MidState Medical Center, are home to the Connecticut Orthopedic Institute, a regional leader in joint replacement and spine surgery. 

Our IAA team works to ensure patient’s safety during the administration of anesthesia during surgery and in the recovery room, and follow-up on postoperative care for any anesthesia-related issues.

Outside of the orthopedic service line, we perform over 3,000 truncal and chest wall blocks in our hospitals per year.

Fellowship Secondary Locations

Our secondary sites are private ambulatory surgery centers that focus on speed and efficiency.

Rotations here are designed to further advance the fellow toward becoming a private practice regional anesthesiologist. Fellows will fine-tune their regional skills and gain exposure to practice in a high-volume orthopedic surgical center.
