Each of our anesthesiologists is a medical doctor (MD or DO), who is a trained specialist for administering a wide range of anesthetics and anesthesia services. Some also have additional specialized training in pediatric anesthesia, neuro-anesthesia and cardiovascular anesthesia. Our anesthesiologoists may work alone, or may work with a certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA).
Your surgeon, anesthesiologist and the entire surgical staff recognize the anxiety with which most patients approach surgery. We believe a description of the type of anesthesia helps patients to prepare for it.
The anesthesiologist will discuss and design an anesthetic plan which has your best interest in mind. Pain control is discussed pre-operatively and is incorporated into the anesthetic plan to give you the greatest degree of comfort throughout your surgery.
Many operations require a general anesthetic, while others can be performed with a regional block.
Pain management is important for your physical and mental well-being. We at Gottlieb get involved in educating and planning a well thought out anesthetic to provide utmost comfort. Many of these pain controlling techniques include epidural, regional block and/or patient controlled analgesia (PCA) devices. In addition, many of our anesthesiologists are not only board certified, but have additional subspecialty training in anesthesia pain control. You can be assured that your anesthesia care team will provide you a safe, comfortable anesthetic specifically tailored to your needs.
