A team of ten anesthesiologists, specializing in eye, ear, throat and cosmetic surgery, are based at the 64th Street Ambulatory Surgical Center (formerly the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital). The remaining physicians care for ambulatory orthopaedic patients and children at the main hospital and the 64th Street Ambulatory Surgical Center, as determined by the scheduling of elective surgical procedures.
