esthesia.com" onclick="linkClick(this.href)">pediatric anesthesiologist is addressing the parents' needs along with caring for the child.”

As the anesthesiologist, Canton was not only responsible for monitoring the patient’s vital signs, he also made sure the patient continued to talk during the surgery.

“I’m there as a cheerleader, someone to console them and a familiar face,” Canton said.

Canton is an anesthesiologist with Allied Anesthesia, which provides anesthesia services to St. Joseph Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC).

Muhonen said that all of the anesthesiologists at Allied Anesthesia, who work with children, have had extra training in pediatric anesthesia. He commended Canton for his professionalism and the degree of preparation and research he did prior to the case.

“He went above and beyond what he needed to do to make this case application safe for the child,” Muhonen said. “It’s really a reflection of the department. They take it upon themselves to hire top quality pediatric anesthesiologists.”

Canton attributed the success of the surgery in part to the excellent teamwork among St. Joseph’s and CHOC'S doctors, nurses and other medical personnel, whom he has worked with for years. For example, during the surgery, the patient suffered a seizure and stopped breathing, a potentially catastrophic complication that can occur during these procedures.

“We were all able to handle it calmly and quickly because we trusted each other and knew what to do,” Canton said. “We made it a small issue when it could have been a major issue, jeopardizing the success of the surgery.”

The patient, Marigold Beltran, said she’s doing much better after the surgery. Her tumor is gone and she has not had any more seizures.

Marigold said she was grateful to Canton because he made sure she wasn’t in any pain and to Muhonen for being such an excellent surgeon.
