Guelay Bilen-Rosas, MD, currently serves as Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology, University of Wisconsin Madison. Her patients have benefited from her deep commitment to providing the best possible care. She serves as a strong advocate for her patients and is interested in improving current patient monitoring practices that will directly impact and improve patient outcomes and our capacity to detect respiratory distress. Not only does Dr. Bilen-Rosas advocate for patients, she is a positive role model and mentor to students, postdocs, and fellow faculty, coaching and encouraging mentees in their academic, research, and career development. Ever driven to ask questions and develop ideas, she makes the time to develop and further pursue her research. Her passions for improving patient care and questioning the status quo have merged in her quest to develop improved methods for early detection of airway compromise that reach beyond the OR and have broad applications across all segments of patient care and research. Despite the incompatibility of ultrasound and air, she detected and described pulsed wave Doppler signaling to quantify airflow velocities, leading to multiple patent applications. Based on preliminary data, she received the WARF Innovation Award in 2016 and the WARF Accelerator Award in 2017 and 2019. In her work developing this new technology, she has supervised several graduate students and a postdoctoral fellow in addition to arraying a strong collaborative network that includes ultrasound experts, biostatisticians, medical physics scientists, mechanical engineers, software engineers, and leading experts in micromachined transducers and related technology.

As a pediatric anesthesiologist, my clinical experiences place me in a unique position to inform research and interventions on surgical patients. Through my clinical observations, I became interested in understanding the factors that contribute to poor oral health outcomes for certain pediatric patients. Childhood caries is a largely preventable disease process and use of operating rooms and associated resources can be an expensive, inefficient use of scarce resources. My research interests include: the impact of policy on utilization of tertiary oral health services, such as emergency departments and general anesthesia; testing interventions in the perioperative period to improve oral health outcomes; and understanding factors that contribute to dental sedation safety.

Health, and Medical Director of University of Wisconsin Hospital (UWHC) Adult Operating Rooms, University of Wisconsin (UW), Madison, WI.. As an academic anesthesiologist, I have spent my entire career educating residents, fellows, and medical students in the subspecialties of neuro and pediatric anesthesia, and perioperative global health. I have served as a mentor and on the promotions committee for several faculty colleagues within and outside of my institution. I have been an invited author for global health, neurosurgical and neuroanesthesia textbooks and have collaborated with our neurosurgeons on multi-center NIH-funded studies (see Contributions to Science listed below). I currently serve as a Board Examiner and Chair of the Question Writing and Editing Committee for the American Board of Anesthesiologists Standardized Oral Examination. In this role I have oversight of the resident demonstration of their knowledge and expertise of anesthetic practice with emphasis on subspecialty-based practice and advance clinical issues. I received an MBA Degree from UMass Amherst in 2011. During and following this, I held numerous leadership roles both at my institution and at the State and National Society Levels.

Probably the most rewarding part of my job is providing anesthesia knowledge, clinical training, and work in my field of expertise to anesthesia providers in LMICs, who would otherwise not receive this.

Bio

Since my fellowship in Pediatric Anesthesiology at Boston Children's Hospital, I have had a strong interest in pediatric pain medicine as well as pediatric anesthesia, including regional blocks. I did a second fellowship at Boston Children's in Pain Medicine and stayed on the staff there until I was recruited to start the Pediatric Pain Service at Mayo Clinic, Rochester. My work at Mayo has been balanced between operative pediatric anesthesia and pediatric pain. This has led to my involvement in the Society for Pediatric Pain Medicine, eventually having been president from 2021 to 2023.

Bio

I believe that good medicine starts with a compassion for people and a mind to serve those in need… I began my journey into medicine as an electrical engineer. Intrigued by radiofrequency transmission systems and cartilage regeneration, I completed graduate study focusing on nanoparticles and mechanokinetic device design. I ventured into medicine with a mind geared towards research in pediatric outcomes and improving the anesthesia delivery and monitoring systems designed for smaller patients. My interests in quality improvement associated with regional anesthesiology for pediatric patients, led me to serve as the Principal Investigator for the national Pediatric regional anesthesia network (PRAN) at Texas Children’s Hospital, with a focus on improving pediatric regional anesthesia drug delivery and quality outcomes. As a pediatric regional anesthesiologist and pain management specialist it is my aim to advance the practice of regional anesthesia and pain medicine in infants and children through safe and efficacious drug delivery. The incorporation of new peripheral nerve blocks brings both excitement and responsibility among anesthesiologists. My expertise in regional anesthesiology has permit me to transcend the perioperative environment and form a collaborative network that enhances pain delivery streams for a multitude of children in the oncology and hematology realm. Equally important to the advancement of pediatric pain medicine is my role as an educator. Along the course of my anesthesiology faculty development, I have taken an active role in the teaching of medical students, residents and fellows through curriculum development, lecture series, workshops and interactive small-group teaching sessions. I am committed to advocating for student education while upholding the highest standards of medical care. I look forward to enhancing the practice of pediatric anesthesiology in continuing to learn from and with medical students, resident-physicians, and colleagues, reviewing the best practices and critically assessing the present standards with evidence-based medicine.
