Dr. Christian A Koch has the following 1 specialty

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

I shared with Dr. Koch that I had terrible experiences with 8 to 14 hours of vomiting from anesthesia every time I had a procedure, and I have had more than 5 procedures. My last colonoscopy, I had vomiting and a migraine so severe, I was in the hospital for 6 days. With Dr. Koch, I woke up without nausea and NO VOMITING!!! He was kind, caring and concerned and took this as a personal challenge. If you can request an anesthesiologist, ask for Dr. Koch.
