Specialties

Dr. Rafael Elenes 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.

He was my anesthesiologist for a recent surgery. He was simply superb. He was very thorough with my preop assessment (I have a complicated medical history) yet extremely efficient. I have had many anesthetics and this was, by far, the smoothest. I was pain-free when I woke up in the recovery room. Again, he was superb.
