Anesthesiology is a branch of medicine that addresses pain control and maintenance of a stable condition during surgery as well as obstetric and diagnostic procedures.
An anesthesiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of drugs and other agents to optimize the patient’s condition before, during and after surgery. Anesthesiologists also diagnose and treat acute and long-standing pain problems. They direct resuscitation and provision of artificial ventilation for critically ill or injured patients.
Whether providing sedation during a routine colonoscopy or stabilizing a patient seriously injured in a car crash, our anesthesiology team provides the foundation for positive surgical outcomes.
