Patient Care Philosophy
I enjoy helping patients through their surgical experience. It is rewarding to allay patients' fears, provide them the best possible anesthetic and pain relief after surgery, and do everything I can to make their experience successful. I especially appreciate medically challenging patients, such as the older patient or those with serious, chronic medical conditions.
I enjoy hiking, backpacking, sailing and cross-country skiing.
Anesthesia for older patients; management of pacemakers and ICDs for surgical procedures involving electrocautery.
Effect of anesthesia on the cardiovascular system in geriatrics; determinants of myocardial oxygen consumption; anesthesia and other medical equipment.
