Care during surgery: Anesthesiologists are physicians who care for patients during surgery and other procedures. This involves selecting the best meds for anesthesia for each patient, and treating any other medical problems such as diseases of the heart, lungs, diabetes, high blood pressure etc. It can be very challenging with long days in the operating room and emergency call, but very satisfying too! i love my work.

Peri-operative MD: Today anesthesiologist do much work outside of the operating room environment. We refer to out profession as a peri-operative physician because we can be involved in the before surgery care, during surgery, and after surgery management of patients. This can be in the icu, er, ob, radiology, clinic or many other areas. There are also many sub-specilties that are available such as cardiac, ob, pain.
