Clinical Interests: Operating Room efficiency; quality of care measures

What would you like your patients to know about you?

On October 1, 2009 I became Chairman of the Department of Anesthesiology and the medical director of the operating rooms at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary in Boston, Massachusetts. The Mass. Eye and Ear has 17 operating rooms and performs approximately 17,000 operative procedures yearly including nearly 4500 pediatric procedures. Prior to this position, I have worked at the Brigham and Women's Hospital as a staff anesthesiologist and was the Vice Chairman for Clinical Affairs and the Clinical Director. I started my career by spending three years in a basic science laboratory investigating the contribution of the spinal cord to mechanisms of action of general anesthetics and the interaction of various anesthetic agents. My recent research interests involve quality and operational efficiency in the utilization of operating room resources.
