Paul Schanbacher , MD USAP Bio

I am an anesthesiologist with many years of clinical practice.  My primary focus of interest is pediatric anesthesia and anesthesia for spinal reconstruction.  However I have a broad scope of practice and enjoy a variety of operative cases.  I consider myself a very lucky individual to have such a fulfilling and challenging career.  A midwesterner at heart, I have lived throughout our great country but happy to call Las Vegas my home for the past eleven years.  My family thoroughly enjoys travel and recreation in the mountains and beaches of our neighboring states

Areas of Clinical Interest
With a strong background in pain management I am interested in researching and developing perioperative pain protocols for patients undergoing extensive spinal surgeries
