Lori Salamati, RN - CRNA

Lorie Salamati received her Master of Science in Anesthesia from UCLA School of Medicine in 1995. Lorie received the Agatha Hodgkins Award for outstanding student in her class, an award voted on by all of the staff at the hospitals in which she completed her residencies. She started her career in anesthesia at Olive View UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, and resigned that position 2 years later to focus her attention on anesthesia for plastic surgery. She maintained staff privileges at UCLA Medical Center for 14 years while working with various plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills. Lorie joined the Montecito Surgery Center in 1997 as the primary anesthesia provider, and has continued in that capacity ever since. The challenge and rewards of working with elective surgeries has contributed to an exciting and fulfilling career. She feels it is an invaluable part of the surgical experience to have the opportunity to speak with your anesthesia provider the evening before your procedure. It allows her to formulate her anesthetic plan for the next day, and gives you the time to have any questions answered about the anesthetic process.
