Anesthesiology is the practice of easing pain and numbing the nerves so that procedures like surgery can occur. It also encompasses the treatment of pain after surgery, as well as dealing with non-surgical pain relief and critical care management. As Dr. Edwin Perez knows, anesthesiologists are vital to the surgical process due to the care they offer both during and after the procedure. He draws on his medical experience as well as his experiences as a child minister to focus on healing both physical and emotional pain in his clients.
Dr. Edwin Perez’s career in anesthesiology began in 2005 when he became an anesthesiology resident at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark, NJ.

However, Edwin realized that he found anesthesiology and pain management a more fulfilling and rewarding career choice. After completing his anesthesiology residency in 2008, he continued his career by becoming a pain management fellow at the University of Washington Medical Center where he was in charge of managing cancer and non-cancer pain patients and performing procedures ranging in complexity from dry-needling to spinal cord stimulator implantation.
