Kathryn Rouine-Rapp, M.D.

Cardiac anesthesiologist

Dr. Kathryn Rouine-Rapp is a cardiac anesthesiologist and a diplomate of the American Board of Anesthesiology. Her main interest is caring for infants, children and adults who undergo cardiac surgery for congenital and acquired heart disease. This includes the perioperative preparation of the patient for surgery. She earned her undergraduate degree in nursing in 1973 at the University of Lowell, Mass, and her medical degree in 1985 at Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, Ore. Rouine-Rapp completed her anesthesia training at UCSF in 1990, then joined the faculty in 1992 after a fellowship in cardiac anesthesia and transesophageal echocardiography at UCSF. She received her certification in perioperative treanesophageal echocardiography in 2000.
