Philosophy of Care
Dr. Bishop strives to provide a high standard of anesthetic care from the time of admission to discharge and beyond. His goal is to provide a safe, balanced, comprehensive anesthetic using the latest evidence-based techniques. At all times you should feel comfortable, relaxed and be reassured that you will be in the safest of hands.
Dr. Bishop's clinical interests are regional anesthesia, trauma anesthesia, pre-hospital and retrieval medicine.
Current research includes the impact of regional anesthesia on pulmonary function. Dr Bishop is also involved in simulation training and has a keen interest in human factors and crisis resource management.
