Dr. Brodt is a Clinical Associate Professor at Stanford University, engaged in clinical care, teaching and research in cardiothoracic anesthesiology. Dr. Brodt is on the SCA Board of Directors and founded the SCA Regional Anesthesia for Cardiothoracic Enhanced Recovery (RACER) Special Interest Group, in addition to serving on multiple SCA committees and task forces. As the recipient of the 2019 SCA-IARS Mid-Career Research Grant, Dr Brodt is pursuing evidence for the utility of regional anesthesia for enhanced recovery in cardiac surgery patients (the RACER study), and continuously seeks to advance the application of regional techniques to a variety of surgical procedures in the population we care for. This stems from a drive to find effective and safe analgesia for cardiac surgery. Dr. Brodt has presented on regional anesthesia for cardiac surgery, considerations for perioperative opioid use, and other topics in cardiac anesthesia at conferences including ASA, SCA, ACA, ERAS Cardiac Society, EACTAIC, moderated the SCA’s first ever international webinar, and is an Editor for the Journal of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia.
