Is a Medical Degree Critical when Choosing Anesthesia Specialists?
The human body has a natural aversion to pain, which is probably the reason why most people are afraid to undergo any kind of surgery. Fortunately, advances in medical technology have introduced the concept and chemistry of anesthesia to help surgery patients cope with the pain of going under the knife. However, there are far too many horror stories one hears and reads in the news. Some patients who are put under anesthesia narrate how things start to go horribly wrong while they are on the operating table. These stories have somehow fuel the intriguing question: when it comes to administering anesthesia, is it entirely necessary to get specialists with an M.D. at the end of their names to do it?
