    On the day of the surgery, the physician anesthesiologist will meet with you and your surgeon to assess your health and make decisions to ensure your anesthesia care is as safe and effective as possible. During surgery, the physician anesthesiologist monitors your vital signs, including how well your heart and lungs are working.  After surgery, this medical doctor will make sure you’re as comfortable as possible while you recover.

    Important tip to remember prior to surgery:

    If you have had any issues with anesthesia in the past, anticipate any issues, or have questions for the physician anesthesiologist, then we encourage you to contact your surgery coordinator.  Your surgery coordinator will then connect you with the physician anesthesia team so the specific doctor can discuss your concern with you.
