Jeremy Lieberman


Anesthesiologist and critical care specialist
Innovator in the field of spinal surgery anesthesia

Dr. Jeremy Lieberman is an anesthesiologist and critical care specialist who sees patients in the hospital. His patients include those undergoing spine surgery and those in intensive care, and including women who are pregnant or in the postpartum period.

Lieberman's research focuses on ways to improve safety and reduce complications for patients having complex spine surgery. Specifically, he investigates how bleeding affects outcomes and how to decrease blood loss during these procedures, ways to reduce spinal cord injury during corrective surgeries for major spine deformities, and ways to reduce both postoperative pain and the use of opioids in spine surgery patients.

Lieberman earned his medical degree at the University of California, San Francisco Medical School. At UCSF, he trained in general surgery, completed a clinical fellowship in critical care medicine and a research fellowship in critical care medicine. He then completed a residency in anesthesiology at UCSF, serving as chief resident.

Lieberman is a member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, International Anesthesia Research Society, California Society of Anesthesiologists, and Society for Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care.

In his free time, Lieberman enjoys cooking, which he has studied in Paris. He also enjoys bicycling, Ping-Pong, crossword puzzles and training cats.
