Dr. Roger K Russell 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.

Dr. Russell was my anesthesiologist at Mass Eye and Ear for a recent operation. I'm a fairly healthy guy, so don't have a tremendous amount of experience in hospitals, but I have to say, hands down he was the best doc I've ever encountered. As MEE is a teaching hospital, I also got to see him instruct a new nurse on using a new IV needle set she hadn't used before (he very openly asked my consent first without any pressure), so I'd also say he's the best teacher I've ever seen, and has an absolutely fantastic bedside manner. If I could give him five stars, I would. Non-rated categories weren't relevant to my experience with him.

Going in for surgery was one of the scariest experiences of my life. With Dr. Russell as my anesthesiologist, I was quickly relaxed and confident that my surgical experience would be a safe one, and it was. His intelligence and bedside manner are amazing. If I ever need anesthesia again, regardless of what type of surgery I may have, I'm going to see Dr. Russell first. He is simply wonderful
