Specialties

Dr. William M Ko has the following 2 SPECIALTIES

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.

More about Dr. William M Ko

Listening is a key part of my internal medicine practice. I learn as much as I can about all aspects of a patient’s life which helps me determine the most effective wellness and treatment options. I also take time to explain things in a way that each patient can understand so he or she can fully participate in making important health decisions. Internal medicine is satisfying as it allows me to help my patients prevent disease as well as address complex medical problems and care for them when they are ill. My wife and I are parents of three children. I enjoy baseball and am an avid fan of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
