Dr. Manuel L Fontes 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 was in Cornell hospital for heart surgery, i am a relative young man (46), my biggest fear was not so much of the heart surgery but was of the anesthesia as years ago i had a few very bad experiences with anesthesia. Dr Fontes went way above what is required of a doctor in helping me get through the surgery and for that matter even getting me to do the surgery. I have never seen such a caring doctor in all my life. After the surgery he continued to comfort me and attend to me even though his job was over. I will never forget him as long as i live.
