Affiliation: Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada;
Statement of expertise for the sub-committee: I lead a dedicated group of Anesthesiologists who care for patients in our University Hospital's Bariatric Surgery Program. I have a background fellowship training in acute pain and have been involved in developing innovative perioperative pain management strategies that have contributed to enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) programs. We are now implementing some of these ERAS principles in the pain management of the morbidly obese patient both within and outside our Bariatric Surgery Program.
