LEADERSHIP The Framework “Great leadership is a thing that the department has displayed in so many of its many endeavors and I define leadership not in grand, new ideas, but in making grand and new things happen.” - Jerry Reves, MD


t Duke Anesthesiolog y, our mission is to provide extraordinary care through a unique culture of innovation, education, research and professional growth. We challenge ourselves to hold the highest values by exhibiting mutual respect and dignity in all that we do. The honesty and integrity of each individual within our department contributes to immaculate performance, by leading the advancement of perioperative medicine and pain management. From the time of our inception in 1944, the Anesthesiology Department has been present at Duke in many capacities. From 1930 to 1944, nurse anesthetists performed all anesthetics administered at Duke under the supervision of surgeons. Duke’s first anesthesiologist, Dr. Ruth Martin, was recruited in 1944. The Anesthesiology Division worked under the Surgery Department as a congruent service, setting the stage for subspecialization and discovery, better known as the Duke Department of Anesthesiology. Dr. Ronald Stephens led the department in its youth and cultivated our residency program from 1950 to 1966. We became an independent, academic department of anesthesiology in 1968 under the guidance of Dr. Sarah Dent, establishing the framework for innovation, excellence, research, education, and growth. Dr. Merel Harmel, former chair of New York Downstate Medical Center and Pritzker School of Medicine in Chicago, came to Duke in 1971 and served as the department's first chair. As a visionary foreman, Dr. Harmel added new clinical


programs and grew the quality and quantity of faculty and residents. In 1983, Dr. Harmel retired and was succeeded by Dr. David Watkins, from the Harvard system. During this time, growth of the department’s institutional and clinical roles continued to unfold. After seven years of leadership, cardiac anesthesiologist, Dr. Jerry Reves succeeded Dr. Watkins as chair. Dr. Reves’ belief in teaching, patient care, research and anesthesia subspecialization revolutionized anesthesiology. This unique opportunity for subspecialization created dynamic work for our anesthesiologists, focusing efforts in pediatrics, regional anesthesia, pain management, women’s services, ambulatory care, transplant, cardiac, and neuroanesthesia. In 2001, Dr. Mark Newman succeeded Dr. Reves. Prior to his tenure as chair, his invaluable contributions to the department in both research and clinical endeavors continued to drive exploration in the field of anesthesiology. Today, Dr. Newman promotes a culmination of success from anesthesiology leaders and prominent individuals to a department investing in education, research, and the aspiration of exceeding the highest standards for medicine here at Duke. Given the ingenious contributions of past and current leaders, Duke Anesthesiology is poised to face the challenges of our future based on a center that encompasses a large and diverse clinical caseload, a solid research foundation, and balanced academic excellence.


INNOVATION Building the Future of Patient Care Duke Anesthesiology is recognized worldwide for the strength of its clinical research program. Our discoveries range from a wide spectrum of subspecialities and permeate operating rooms around the world. We are committed to exploring new ways to serve our patients.



As we have evolved in the Duke University Health System, so has our vision for the future. The desire to be the leader in the advancement of perioperative medicine and pain management drives our progress in all aspects of care. We invest in great research initiatives, striving to surpass standards for anesthesiology. Tong Joo (TJ) Gan, MD discovered that acupuncture for treating chronic headaches is more effective and has fewer side effects than medication. In addition, he also found that acupuncture reduces the need for opioid medication after surgery. Stuart Grant, MD and the Regional Anesthesia team have been successful using ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks, improving safety and reliability. The use of ultrasound allows physicians to see the nerve that is being blocked while identifying other structures such as blood vessels, which should be avoided. In many cases, these nerve blocks allow us to discharge patients soon after surgery so they experience a more comfortable recovery. Mark F. Newman, MD and his team discovered that there was a strong correlation between cognitive dysfunction and warming a patient too quickly after heart surgery. They found that patients who were allowed an additional 10 to 12 minutes to return to a normal body temperature after their procedure scored better on standard tests of cognition after surgery. This practice of rewarming has since become a standard of care at all medical institutions around the world. Mihai Podgoreanu, MD and his colleagues are the first in the world to extend genetic research to examine the relationships between our genes and complications after surgery. Dr. Podgoreanu’s research is making huge strides in the direction of “personalized medicine,� in which the treatments are tailored to the individual patient. Scott Schulman, MD pioneered drug safety in children when he led the first pediatric clinical research trial to study the safety of nitroprusside, a blood pressure-lowering drug commonly used in children. Historically, drugs are rarely tested on children, but there is a growing awareness that children need to be tested because they tend to react differently to drugs than adults. Dr. Schulman was awarded one of the largest National Institutes of Health Grants of $5.1 million for this three-year study.



CLINICAL SPECTRUM “It’s the commitment that the doctors have. They watch you so closely throughout the procedure. Your life is in their hands from the moment you’re in until the moment you come back out, and now I found, a long time after that.” – Mary Pat Heath, Patient

Duke Anesthesiology values diversity as we interact with a deep understanding for the suffering of others with an unwavering obligation to attempt to remove their pain. Our commitment to our patients engages our department to make individual and joint efforts to support career development, education, research and innovation. Our foremost priority is to serve each patient that comes through our doors with dignity and compassion. We use our clinical expertise to achieve ultimate health, empowering patients with the opportunity to live life to the fullest. Subspecialization allows each patient to receive expert and modern care, while allowing the department’s physicians to master their craft.

The Anesthesiology Department at Duke University Medical Center is comprised of nine distinct divisions which represent nine subspecialities. Ambulatory Anesthesia uses advanced regional anesthesia to facilitate complex outpatient surgery using a broad array of targeted peripheral nerve blocks, continuous ambulatory infusions of local anesthetic, diverse multi-modal analgesia and paravertebral blockade for breast surgery. Cardiothoracic & Critical Care Medicine provides anesthesia for thoracic surgery as well as for minimally invasive surgery (port-access), “off-pump” surgery,


robotic surgery, and transmyocardial revascularization to valve repairs, multi-valve replacements, re-operations, thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repairs, and “routine CABG” surgery. This division is well known for its expertise in transesophageal echocardiography, outcomes research, and systems modeling of perioperative injury. Critical Care Medicine provides care for the sickest of patients in the Surgical Intensive Care Units at both the Duke University Medical Center and the Veteran Affairs Medical Center. General, Vascular, High-Risk Transplant & Critical Care Medicine provides comprehensive services for patients


Hospital Addition For Surgery Building

In 2008, Duke University Medical Center expanded its facilities which created five more operating rooms, new family waiting rooms, a brand new post-anesthesia care unit (PACU), and office space for faculty. The department’s new office space houses the latest technology including state of the art informational touchscreens, a training laboratory for transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) as well as future opportunities for an on-site learning center.

undergoing general, peripheral and major vascular, urologic, trauma, and abdominal transplantation surgery. Orthopedics, Plastics, & Regional Anesthesia serves a large patient population including patients requiring total joint replacement, adult and pediatric spine surgery, advanced plastic surgery, and orthopedic trauma surgery. Otolaryngology, Head, Neck & Neuroanesthesia provides anesthetic care for adults undergoing procedures such as complex head and neck surgery including awake craniotomy, airway laser surgery,


and translabyrinthine acoustic surgery. Pain Management includes a comprehensive evaluation of pain problems and provides medical and interventional therapies depending on the individual's clinical needs. Pediatric & Critical Care Medicine provides a comprehensive range of pediatric anesthesia services throughout the health system. Women’s & Critical Care Medicine is responsible for obstetric and gynecologic anesthesia and provides continuous in-house faculty coverage of obstetrics.

Through significant research in neuroscience, molecular biology, molecular and human pharmacology, our team is making crucial advancements for patients worldwide. Our laboratories offer an environment for innovative results that transcend boundaries in our field.

The Molecular Genetics of Pain Signaling Laboratory uses the genetics of the Drosophila melanogaster (the so-called fruit fly) to study fundamental neurobiological problems. In this lab, Dr. Dan Tracey studies responses to pain stimuli using behavioral analysis, molecular genetics, biochemistry, electrophysiology and functional imaging. Many of our studies focus on enhancing the surgical experience as well as improving patients’ quality of life after surgery. Advancement in genetic contributions, infection recovery, bowel function, stroke and heart attack, nausea and vomiting, kidney function and other important surgical outcomes are some of the key focuses that engage our research team. The Systems Modeling of Perioperative Injury Laboratory provides a programmatic translational approach that capitalize on several unique resources, including wellcharacterized small (rodent) and large (porcine) animal models of cardiopulmonary bypass, deep hypothermic


circulatory arrest and cardioplegic arrest, expertise in high-throughput molecular profiling of organ specific responses to ischemia-reperfusion injury, computational and evolutionary biology capabilities, as well as large biorepositories of well-phenotyped cardiac surgical patients. This systems biology paradigm enables elucidation of the complex mechanisms underlying perioperative organ injury (brain, kidney, and heart in particular), identification of organ dysfunction biomarkers, and prioritization of novel cardio- and neuroprotective compounds. Under the leadership of Dr. G. Burkhard Mackensen and Dr. Mihai V. Podgoreanu, researchers are studying two key genetic factors that produce outcomes not yet explored in this field. Their research, dedication and clinical knowledge bring trendsetting discoveries to medicine and continue to advance improvements for our patients' health and well-being.

Our faculty members travel worldwide to share their expertise with patients and colleagues, improving the delivery of health care across the globe.

Holly Muir, MD | Ghana

Joseph Mathew, MD | China

Under the umbrella of the non-profit organization, Kybele, Dr. Holly Muir and her multidisciplinary team offer their services at Ghanaian hospitals several times a year, creating centers of excellence in maternal care. Dr. Muir's team work with local colleagues to reduce the incidence of maternal and stillborn deaths while using local resources to help make system changes that produce more efficient patient care. Surplus monitoring equipment from Duke and other institutions have been donated and shipped abroad. An anesthesia nursing school has been established to cater to anesthesia service shortages, introduce anesthesia services within the labor ward and improve patient safety. Dr. Muir and her team have provided vital assistance, training and equipment to the physicians, staff and patients in Ghana.

Fuwai Hospital in Beijing, China currently performs over 5,000 cardiovascular surgeries annually. With a new hospital building underway, they project that figure to rise to over 8,000 patients, making them one of the largest cardiovascular surgical centers in the world. Dr. Joseph Mathew is pioneering a program that will mentor and train talented physicians from Fuwai who will come to Duke with the commitment to return to China. Ultimately, this program was designed with hopes to grow the practice of academic medicine and improve patient care in China. Collaborating with Fuwai to conduct clinical research gives us the opportunity to expand our research and globally impact anesthesia care.






Norbert de Bruijin, MD and Fiona Clements, MD | Zambia, Tanzania

Retired Duke anesthesiologists, Drs. Norbert de Bruijin and Fiona Clements expanded their roles to surgeons before embarking on a journey to Africa. Since 2006, they have served as missionary physicians in Zambia and Tanzania, Africa, treating patients with conditions such as: osteomyelitis, fractures, burns, contractures, tumors, club feet, cleft lips, intestinal obstructions, abscesses, peritonitis, appendicitis, intussussception and pyloric stenosis. Dr. David Macleod | Uganda

Duke anesthesiologists and clinicians of other specialties continue their service in East Africa providing anesthesia, nursing, and neurosurgical efficiency and utilization through training camps and technology.


In Uganda, six of Duke's neurosurgeons work alongside with five neurosurgeons from Mulago National Hospital in Kampala to serve a population of 30 million. Their goal is to determine if an infusion of technology, anesthesiology, neurosurgical and nursing training camps could improve output, utilization and efficiency in Uganda. The team facilitated neurosurgery camps where they trained Ugandan clinicians in the operating room, recovery room, intensive care unit and general patient ward. Duke contributed over 16 tons and over $3 million of medical equipment. After two years of directing training camps, the surgical services, operative cases and elective procedures have increased dramatically, and have equipped Mulago National Hospital to handle more complex cases.



The invaluable discoveries made at Duke Anesthesiology have impacted operating rooms and benefited millions of patients, globally. Our successes have only driven us to find more support for our talented team of clinical and basic scientists. The Developing Research Excellence for Anesthesia Management (DREAM) Campaign is the first philanthropic initiative to support anesthesia research. Our goal is to raise support for research that is most likely to improve the health and outcomes of patients undergoing surgery. Through partnerships with our supporters, we hope to build a solid foundation to help sustain and encourage our physician scientists who continue to make pioneering discoveries. The Duke DREAM Campaign was developed to address the problem of reduced funding. The strategic goals of this campaign are to: Establish endowed professorships ($1.5-2.5 million) to invest in world-class faculty who would, in turn, secure funding from the National Institutes of Health. Interest dollars from these endowments are to be used to support investigator 16

salaries and provide them with the time and resources necessary to develop research programs. Raise $2 million in philanthropic support over five years to provide bridge funding for key research programs, prevent successful research programs from terminating due to the lack of funding, and to start new projects that incorporate innovative techniques to advance the frontiers of anesthesiology research. Establish philanthropic support as a long-term mechanism of limiting the adverse consequences of lapsed federal funding. Duke Anesthesiology has remained a leader in the field because we encourage our researchers to fulfill their potential. Not only do we seek to provide safe care for our patients during surgery, we strive to provide an opportunity for a better life after surgery. From organ protection to genetic contributions to surgical outcomes to patient safety, we redefine patient care around the world. Join us as we change the future of medicine.
