What is an anesthesiologist?

Anesthesiologists focus on patients’ safety and pain management before, during, and after surgery. This involves creating anesthetic plans before surgery, monitoring patient vitals during the operation, and relieving pain afterward. Depending on the type of surgery, anesthesiologists will administer general anesthesia (also known as “putting a patient to sleep”), regional anesthesia to numb specific parts of the body, or intravenous medications to calm conscious patients during surgical procedures.
