    Photo: Christian Müller, M.D. My grandfather, who was a successful surgeon, was a little disappointed about my desire to go into anesthesia. "Fifty years ago," he said, "your job was done by a nurse!" "That's not bad", I replied, "considering 200 years ago your job was done by a barber!"

    I am very happy that I have chosen a career in anesthesiology. I enjoy working with people and getting patients through the operation comfortably. I like the hands-on approach and the relatively limited number of patients I have, thereby giving me more time to focus on a particular patient.

    My special interests are cardiac anesthesia, anesthesia for the trauma patient and the difficult airway. The reason I went into cardiac anesthesia is the challenge of getting a severely sick patient through the surgery and therefore making a difference in that patient's quality of life. Furthermore I enjoy spending time with my family and (as you can see in the picture) post-call days.

    I have been working with and teaching residents since 2001. I enjoy seeing residents making progress and developing into good physicians. My teaching interests are the practical approach to deliver a good anesthetic, to perform a safe anesthetic for a patient with severe cardiac disease, and a practical approach to manage a difficult airway. My goal is to "translate" the information my residents read in textbooks into good clinical skills.

    I am looking forward to future residents coming through and sharing with them Chinese, Indian or Middle Eastern food when we are on call.
