Patient Care

The modern practice of Anesthesiology impacts patients across the entire spectrum of medical and surgical care. Anesthesiologists are considered the medical experts in patient safety before, during, and following surgical and diagnostic procedures. You'll find our Anesthesiologists in the expected areas - the operating room and labor and delivery suites - where we provide patients with comfort, pain relief, and life saving perioperative care, but you'll also find us in places that you might not expect. Our highly trained physicians care for patients before and after surgery in the Intensive Care Units, offer consultation and management of medical conditions in preparation for surgery, on the hospital wards bringing technology and expertise in managing post-operative pain to patients after surgery, and in the Marc A. Asher Spine Center and Pain Clinic offering patients with chronic pain leading edge treatment options. Our large, team based, anesthesia department delivers state of the art care in multiple settings at The University of Kansas Hospital, KU MedWest surgery center, and at the Indian Creek Campus. The scope of our practice includes anesthesia care in preoperative evaluation, operating rooms, obstetrical wards, post operative recovery areas, intensive care units, radiology suites, pain clinics, and multiple treatment areas throughout the coveted Center for Advanced Heart Care.
