Dr Steve Roberts has been a Consultant Paediatric Anaesthetist at Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, for the past 18 years.
As a Registrar Dr Roberts became interested in the use of ultrasound to image children's spines and soon realised that it had begun to be used in adults in Europe to identify peripheral nerves. As a consequence he was an early adopter of these techniques; starting one of the first UK ultrasound guided regional anaesthesia courses.
He is Trust Lead for ACSA, Day Surgery Unit and Radiology and is Co-Founder of the Ultrasound for Paediatric Anaesthetists course (U4PA) which offers 2 days of hands on, practical ultrasound workshops.
Steve is the Editor of the Oxford Handbook Paediatric Anaesthesia, and Author of Paediatric Anaesthesia – the Oxford Specialist handbook the second edition of which was published in 2019.
Steve’s main areas of anaesthetic interest include regional anaesthesia and craniofacial surgery.
