As a pediatric anesthesiologist, I work with all types of pediatric anesthesia and specialize in anesthesia for children receiving a liver transplant, fetal anesthesia services and cardiac anesthesia outside of the cardiac operating room.
I want my patients and their families to know that I will take care of their children as if they were one of my own. At Cincinnati Children’s, we care for the sickest patients in the country. Our most experienced providers deliver our high-quality care, and we do this because we work together as a highly functional family.
My first pediatric rotation fueled my passion for pediatric anesthesia during my anesthesia residency. I love taking care of children because of how exacting it is as compared to treating adults.
I’m proud of earning the SAMA (Sudanese American Medical Association) Physician of the Year Award for my charitable clinical activities, education and academic teaching in Khartoum, Sudan.
In my free time, I enjoy music and cooking. I have extensive classical music training and a culinary arts degree.
