Dr. Spector is trained in all aspects of anesthesia administration. Following dental school, he completed training in a hospital-based surgical residency program alongside medical residents in general surgery, anesthesia and other specialties. During this time, he served on the medical anesthesiology service, where he evaluated patients for anesthesia, delivered the anesthetic, and monitored post-anesthetic patients.
Because of his extensive training, Dr. Spector is well-prepared to appropriately administer local anesthesia, all forms of sedation, and general anesthesia. He is experienced in airway management, endotracheal intubation, establishing and maintaining intravenous lines, and managing complications and emergencies that may arise during the administration of anesthesia.
Before your surgery, Dr. Spector will review the type of anesthetic to be used, as well as the way you’re likely to feel during and after the operation. After surgery, you may be prescribed a medication to make you as comfortable as possible when you get home.
