Dr. Tim Miller appointed as the new Clinical Director of Abdominal Transplant Anesthesiology

We would like to congratulate Dr. Timothy Miller for his recent appointment as the Clinical Director of Abdominal Transplant Anesthesiology. Dr. Miller is an Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology at Duke University Hospital.

Dr. Miller completed his medical school training at Birmingham University, UK, and his residency in anesthesiology at the Nottingham and East Midlands School of Anaesthesia. During his residency, Dr. Miller attained a cardiothoracic anesthesiology fellowship at Glenfield Hospital, and became a fellow of the Royal College of Anaesthetists.

Dr. Miller joined Duke as faculty in the GVT division in 2007, and became an active member of the liver transplant team. Collaborating with the Department of Surgery, Dr. Miller started the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) program for colorectal surgery in 2010. This program has reduced the median length of stay after colorectal surgery from seven to four days, and has led to ERAS programs in pancreatobiliary surgery and cystectomy. His research is based around Enhanced Recovery, and the management of patients undergoing major abdominal surgery.

We sincerely thank Dr. Kerri Wahl who has served as the Chief of Abdominal Transplant Anesthesiology for the past 20 years. Dr. Wahl is an internationally recognized expert in anesthesiology for liver transplantation; and under her leadership, Duke has become the largest center for liver transplantation in the Southeast and is recognized as the best in North Carolina.

Again, congratulations to Dr. Miller and we look forward to working with him in his new role as the Clinical Director of Abdominal Transplant Anesthesiology.
