Historical or Biographical Note

The Anesthesiology Department is part of The George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences. The department is responsible for providing care to patients during surgery by providing anesthesia.

The George Washington University Anesthesiologist is the perioperative physician who provides care to the patient throughout his or her surgical experience. This includes medical evaluation prior to surgery, consulting with the surgical team, providing pain control and support of life functions during surgery, supervising care immediately following surgery, and medically discharging the patient from the recovery unit.

The physicians are either board-certified or board-eligible and have completed extensive training in their specialty and subspecialty areas. The team provides a wide range of anesthesia services from basic inpatient and outpatient services, to the subspecialties of cardiac, obstetrical, ambulatory and neurosurgical anesthesia, in addition to acute and chronic pain management.

The Critical Care Division of the Department of Anesthesiology contributes to the overall continuity of care for patients who require the expertise of the intensivist.
