Physicians from Great Lakes Anesthesiology are pleased to provide care to patients along side our Roswell Park colleagues. Many pediatric patients travel between Women & Children's Hospital and Roswell Park Cancer Institute to receive specialized treatment that is only available at one institution. One of our anesthesiologists, Nicole Gothgen MD remarked, "It is truly inspiring to see our youngest patients on a daily basis as they struggle against this terrible disease. It is an honor to help them in their fight. We see first-hand how lucky our region is to have the resources of Roswell Park."
