A Message from the Chairman

Dr. KhanWelcome to the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Kansas Medical Center.

The dynamic specialty of anesthesiology has witnessed unprecedented growth and change since the administration of ether in 1846. Today the field has evolved into a continuum of perioperative care beginning with the presurgical assessment and education of the patient through intraoperative management to the postoperative phase.

The field of anesthesiology continues to grow with the evolution of multiple subspecialties. The anesthesiologist of the 21st century is called upon not only for the perioperative care of the surgical patient but also provides his or her expertise in the intensive care setting, the management of pain, high-risk obstetrics surgery, pediatric care, organ transplant, cardiothoracic cases and a variety of other challenging clinical settings.

Patient Comments

"Nurse Anesthetist was an angel! She was so re-assuring, had a calming effect. Just her simple "touch" on my shoulder prior to going into surgery and talking to me before she did anything. She is excellence in action!"

"My Anesthesiologist was amazing. She ended up being the one to get my IV going after 3 nurses were unable to."

"Anesthesiologist listened to my concerns and involved me and the surgeon in the pretreatment plan. I never thought surgery would be a pleasant experience but it actually was!"

"Calm, caring, kind, good eye-contact, explained things well and good sense of humor!"

"Anesthesiologist were very friendly and made me very comfortable."
