Dorothy J Gaal MD
Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology and of Neurosurgery; Clinical Director Pediatric Anesthesia
After completing my anesthesiology residency at University of North Carolina and a Pediatric Anesthesiology fellowship at Children's Hospital Boston, I joined the faculty of Yale University. I have enjoyed being part of the Pediatric Anesthesia Section sinced it was established in 1992. Although initially involved in research of coagulation defects associated with CPB in children, my focus for the last 14 years has been clinical care and education. This includes providing anesthesia services to children having most types of surgery, except currently liver transplantation. Recently I became the Medical Director of Pediatric ANesthesia at Yale.
Another great interest for me is International Medicine. I have participated in many medical missions for surgical care for children. A number of these have been Yale based. I volunteer for several NGOs both as a team member and a member of committees.
