Department of Anesthesia & Pain Medicine

The TMUH department of Anesthesia & Pain Medicine was established in August 1976. During the past decades, the department has undergone rapid expansion due to the need for anesthetic services growing in Taiwan. The current director, Prof. Ta-Liang Chen, began promoting the concept of “Holistic anesthetic care” when he was the President of the Taiwan Society of Anesthesiologist, 2004-2006. This plan emphasized patient-centered anesthetic care, which also encouraged the clinical application of basic sciences. We offer professional intraoperative anesthetic care, optimized for your safety and comfort!
