The research interest of Toby N. Weingarten, M.D., includes clinical outcomes following anesthetic management for patients undergoing bariatric, urology and general surgical procedures.
- Examining association between anesthetic management and Phase I recovery from anesthesia components including duration of recovery, postoperative nausea and vomiting, pulmonary complications, and pain control
- Examining risk factors for adverse outcomes following anesthetic management including kidney injury and pulmonary complications
Significance to patient care
There are many efficiencies to be gained in the perioperative management of patients that can decrease the duration of convalesce as well as improve patient satisfaction. Dr. Weingarten's research focuses on anesthetic factors that can help achieve these goals.
