Anesthesiologists Join OU Physicians
OKLAHOMA CITY – Anesthesiologists Marcos Gomes, M.D., and Amanda (Russell) Gomes, M.D., have established their medical practices with OU Physicians. Anesthesiologists specialize in the use of drugs and other means to avert or reduce pain in patients, especially during surgery.
Both doctors specialize in critical care anesthesiology and will provide services in the operating room and intensive care unit. They come to OU Physicians from Shands Hospital at the University of Florida, Gainesville, where they completed fellowships in critical care anesthesiology.
Marcos Gomes completed an anesthesiology residency at the Cleveland Clinic Anesthesiology Institute, Cleveland, Ohio, where he also served as chief resident. He earned his medical degree in Porto Alegre, Brazil.
Amanda Gomes also completed her residency at the Cleveland Clinic Anesthesiology Institute. She earned her medical degree from the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine, Tulsa.
Both doctors are members of the International Anesthesia Research Society, Society of Critical Care Anesthesiologists, American Society of Anesthesiology and the Society of Critical Care Medicine.
With more than 540 doctors, OU Physicians is the state’s largest physician group. The practice encompasses almost every adult and child specialty. Many OU Physicians have expertise in the management of complex conditions that is unavailable anywhere else in the state, region or sometimes even the nation. Some have pioneered surgical procedures or innovations in patient care that are world firsts.
OU Physicians see patients in their offices at the OU Health Sciences Center and in Edmond, Midwest City and other cities around Oklahoma. When hospitalization is necessary, they often admit patients to OU Medical Center. Many also care for their patients in other hospitals around the metro area. OU Physicians serve as faculty at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and train the region’s future physicians.
