What is Anesthesiology?

Anesthesiology is the practice of medicine dedicated to the relief of pain and total care of the surgical patient before, during and after surgery. There are an estimated 40 million anesthetics administered each year in this country. Anesthesiologists participate in more than 90 percent of these anesthetics.

Through improved technology and better training, complications from anesthesia have declined dramatically over the past several decades. The rate of anesthesia complications has declined by more than ten fold. At present, the chance of a healthy patient suffering an intra-operative death attributable to anesthesia is less than 1 in 200,000.

An anesthesiologist has at least 12 years of education including

  • 4 years of college
  • 4 years of medical school
  • 1 (or more) years of internship
  • 3 years of Anesthesia Specialty training, known as Anesthesia Residency
In our practice an anesthesiologist and at times another team member, a certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA) work together to provide your anesthetic care.
