Dr. Alexander Bankov answered
36 years experience Anesthesiology
Keep you safe: and comfortable during surgical and diagnostic procedures. As specially trained physicians, they learn your medical history, examine you, formulate the plan for your anesthesia, whether it by inducing total unconsciousness ("sleep"), sedating you or using local or topical anesthetics to numb the nerves responsible for the pain. They are also often responsible for directing trained nurses.
