The patient monitoring of vitals, anesthesia delivery systems and patient warming combine with the other patient-friendly attributes of the Center to ensure the best patient care possible.

In his own practice, Dr. Kamali has provided care for the communities of Orange County and is focused on the Newport Beach area. Dr. Kamali has served as past director of anesthesia at the Newport Beach Surgery Center located in the Newport Lido Medical Center.

“Anesthesia is the consistent variable in every surgery and plays a significant role in the impact on patient comfort, outcomes and recovery time,” said Dr. Kamali. “While anesthesia is the life-sustaining aspect of patient care, we strive to make it the least recognized by the general public. The ultimate goal in the performance of our job is to be transparent to the patient experience. I am excited to be leading the team of talented anesthesiologists at Renaissance at Newport Harbor and look forward to working with the management, surgeons and staff to deliver seamless patient care.”
