Dr. Pamela K Russell has the following 1 specialty
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 1st referred to Dr. Russell in 1998, shortly after having an intrathecal pump placed in WY by a dr. I really liked! I must say, he steered me right!! Dr. Russell & Judy (nurse) are the next best thing to chocolate!! I used to travel from mid-state by husband or train, I currently fly from another state! I can walk in & immediately she knows if I'm doing well or sends me to ER as she did with both my pneumonia & intestinal blockage almost. She is compassionate about her work and for years was on NV pharmacy board (not sure if is now). All I can say is if you have the privilege of her and/or Judy taking care of you, consider yourself blessed, I do!!!
She is Tops in my Book!
