Biography

Dermot Richard Fitzgibbon, M.D., M.B.B.Ch., is a board certified anesthesiologist at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and a UW professor of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine and adjunct professor of Oncology and Pain Medicine.

Dr. Fitzgibbon believes pain management in cancer patients should be patient focused. He feels it is important for patients to understand why they are experiencing pain as not all pain is caused by cancer. Successful pain management requires a team approach between all who are involved in care and requires a long-term commitment to care which must include the patient.

Dr. Fitzgibbon earned his M.D. at the University College of Cork, Ireland. He is board certified in Pain Medicine and Anesthesiology by the American Board of Anesthesiology. His clinical and research interests include perioperative pain management, cancer pain management and anesthesiology with a special interest in regional anesthesia.
