At Bristol Anesthesia Services we have a longstanding culture of integrity, compassion and teamwork. Anesthesiologists medically direct Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) to provide safe and compassionate anesthesia care tailored to each of our patients. Patient safety and comfort are our uncompromised priorities.
- The physicians of Bristol Anesthesia Services are all Medical Doctors (MDs) who specialize in providing anesthesia. Our specialized training makes us uniquely qualified to care for patients requiring anesthesia for a wide variety of procedures from open heart surgery to colonoscopies. The education required to become eligible for board certification in Anesthesiology gives us the knowledge and experience to anticipate challenges that may arise during a procedure as well as the ability to continuously assess and treat the many health issues that relate to the anesthetic.
- To become an Anesthesiologist, one must complete undergraduate college, four years of medical school followed by four years of training as a resident in the specialty of Anesthesiology. Additional time may be spent in subspecialty fellowship training.
- Bristol Anesthesia Services provides anesthetic care with medically directed CRNAs (nurse anesthetists). All of our patients receive excellent and personalized care by one of our board certified Anesthesiologists who directs the anesthetic plan and is involved in every phase of the anesthetic.
