Every patient I have I treat as though they are part of my family. No matter who they are I make sure they are the most important person at that moment.
G. Alexis Raftopoulos, DO
I am an anesthesiologist that specializes in pediatrics and pediatric cardiac. I have a passion for taking care of children of any age -- from one hour old to teenage years. I like to make sure that both the child and the parent feel comfortable with everything going on in the OR as well as after. When I am not doing pediatric anesthesia I also enjoy taking care of adults. I provide care for a wide range of adult cases from cardiac to general.
I am originally from Albuquerque, NM, but love living in Las Vegas. I enjoy many out door activities and I am a big movie buff. When time permits, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful husband.
Areas of clinical interest
I am interested in methods for improving pediatric pain control without the use of narcotics and future advances in pediatric cardiac surgery/anesthesia.
