Dr. Murugesu Gajapathy 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.

Warm, professional, wonderful, thank you Dr.!

I was so afraid of anesthesia... as most people are. I met with Dr. Gajapathy right before the surgery and I told him my fears and anxieties.. He was so calming and warm. He listened to everything I had to say and assuaged all my fears. He was gentle and caring and obviously so experienced. I was so nervous and Dr. Gajapathy made me calm down and feel that I was in very experienced hands. I went out perfectly, comfortably and woke up smoothly as from a nice sleep. A bit of nausea which passed very quickly. I so appreciate what this man did to make me feel safe and cared for FIVE STARS!! Thank you Doctor!!! No problems at all..He is great..highly recommend..
