Anesthesiology is the practice of medicine that uses specific drugs to render your entire body—or part of your body—insensitive to pain. Anesthesia will enable you to tolerate a surgical procedure comfortably, with minimal emotional stress. Based upon the type of surgery you are having, among other factors, there are different types of anesthesia.
An anesthesiologist is a doctor of medicine with three or more additional years of specialty training in anesthesia. Anesthesiologists are involved in intensive care, cardiac resuscitation, respiratory therapy and pain treatment. Their primary role, however, is to care for patient needs during surgery or obstetrics, and in the immediate postoperative period.
