David Faraoni

Dr. Faraoni is an anesthesiologist in the Division of Cardiac Anesthesia and the Department of Anesthesia and Pain Medicine at The Hospital for Sick Children and Associate Scientist in the Department of Translational Medicine at the Sick Kids Research Institute.

I am a pediatric anesthesiologist from Belgium. Graduated from medical school (Free University of Brussels, Belgium) in 2007, I completed my residency in Anesthesiology and Pediatric Anesthesia at the Free University of Brussels in September 2012. I was subsequently employed as an Assistant Professor, in the department of Pediatric Anesthesiology at Queen Fabiola Children’s University Hospital in Brussels until September 2014. I completed my PhD thesis in June 2015, entitled: “Perioperative Management of Bleeding in Children undergoing Cardiac Surgery”. From October 2014 until June 2016, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor of Anaesthesia at Harvard Medical School and Research Associate in the Department of Anesthesiology, Peri-operative and Pain Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital. I joined the Hospital for Sick Children in July 2016 where I completed a cardiac anesthesia fellowship. In July 2017, I was appointed as staff anesthesiologist in the Division of Cardiac Anesthesia and the Department of Anesthesia and Pain Medicine at The Hospital for Sick Children, and Associate Professor of Anesthesia in the department of Anesthesia at University of Toronto.
I am also Associate Scientist in the Department of Translational Medicine at the Sick Kids Research Institute. I am Associate Editor for Anesthesiology, Anesthesia & Analgesia, and Pediatric Anesthesia, as well as a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia. I’m an active member of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis, and member of the Network for the Advancement of Patient Blood Management, haemostasis and thrombosis (NATA) board of directors.
My research program is focused on better understanding the coagulopathy in neonates and children with congenital heart disease, and develop multimodal and multidisciplinary strategies to improve bleeding management and rationalize the use of blood products in this high risk population.
