Dr. George Maryniak has been practicing anesthesia for over 30 years. So that means he's done this before. More than once. In fact, he guesses that during his career he has administered over 60,000 anesthetics.
Dr. Maryniak is a specialist in Anesthesia. He obtained his medical degree and anesthesia training in London, England. He and his family emigrated to Canada in 1989, and to Vancouver in 1993. He is a Specialist Anesthesiologist certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
He is a staff Anesthesiologist at Surrey Memorial Hospital and the Valley Surgery Centre in Surrey. In addition, he provides dental anesthesia services to about 1,200 patients a year at Dr. Brad Forster's office and the Delbrook Surgical Centre.
When he is not administering anesthesia he spends time fixing his house, skiing (badly), and working as Medical Director for Project HANDS, a humanitarian organization which he co-founded. Project HANDS provides, amongst other things, medical care to the poor in Guatemala.
