Dr Michelle Dee
Since 2002 Dr. Michele Dee has been an attending Anesthesiologist at Cedars-Sinai. She is an Assistant Professor member of the Cedars Sinai Anesthesia Residency Program, teaching anesthesiology residents and student nurse anesthetists on a daily basis. Additionally, Dr Dee is the Director of Anesthesiology at Cedars Sinai Endoscopy Center.
Dr. Dee completed five years of general surgery residency and a year-long Pediatric Trauma Surgery Fellowship before transitioning to Pediatric Anesthesia. Dr. Dee’s awareness of the global state of practice combined with her passion for teaching has led her to participate in a number of international surgical missions for pediatric surgery. During these mission trips, a large portion of her work has involved teaching the anesthesiology staff including Anesthesia Physicians, Anesthesia Physician Residents, and Nurse Anesthetists.
This work led Dr. Dee to co-found Ohana One International Surgical Aid, which focuses entirely on Surgical and Anesthesia Care and Education. She believes that global health outreach is of vital importance, and has conviction that it is our collective role to share intellectual resources with countries short on staff to care for complex anesthesia and surgical patients.
