Anesthesiology is the medical specialty concerned with the total perioperative care of patients before, during, and after surgery. It encompasses anesthesia, intensive care medicine, critical emergency medicine, and pain medicine. Anesthesiologists have the primary responsibility of monitoring the patient’s vital signs during surgery. In addition to basic measurements such as pulse, blood pressure and temperature, anesthesiologists also measure the patient’s respiration.

Among his numerous accolades, Dr. Cabral is the recipient of Compassionate Doctor Recognition (2010, 2011, 2012, 2016, 2017) and Patients’ Choice Award (2010, 2011, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018).
