Highland Hospital / Departments - Centers / Anesthesiology Dept / Anesthesiologists Our Highly Trained Anesthesiologists Anesthesiologists are physicians trained to administer and manage anesthesia given during a surgical procedure. They are also responsible for managing and treating changes in your critical life functions--breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure--as they are affected by the surgery being performed. Further, they immediately diagnose and treat any medical problems that might arise during and immediately after surgery. Highland anesthesiologists work side by side with surgeons to ensure the highest quality surgical experience for our patients. Catherine T. Battaglia, M.D. Gary M. Kawczynski, M.D. Peter K.
