Mary E. Fischer, MD

I am a board-certified anesthesiologist with expertise in providing anesthesia to cancer patients. My major area of interest is caring for patients who are undergoing surgery for liver cancer, and I am the anesthesia team leader for Memorial Sloan Kettering’s hepatobiliary team.

I perform anesthesia techniques such as low central venous pressure (LCVP) anesthesia and hemodilution, both of which ensure that patients lose less blood and need fewer transfusions during liver surgery.

Presently I am very interested in how fluid therapy can reduce problems before, during, and after surgery to promote the long-term survival of our patients.
