Dr. James B Kelly Jr 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.

Five Stars

Dr. Kelly took a lot of time reviewing my father's case prior to surgery. He LISTENED carefully to my father, my mother and me, heard our concerns and did not minimize them. Many times you don't even get to spend 5 minutes with an anesthesiologist prior to surgery, however, this was not the case with Dr. Kelly. And GREAT follow up after surgery to manage pain while taking into account the chronic breathing difficulties of the patient by not overmedicating him and slowing his breathing further. He is a great and very caring doctor!
