Home Page | the Department of Anesthesiology

“Ronald K. Baker PhD, MD was a resident in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Arizona in the late 70s when I was a junior faculty member. We did many cases together, and I remember him well, and fondly, as an excellent resident and physician, always on top of things. He had an engaging personality, scraggly mustache, and a wry (sometimes smirky) smile and sense of humor. Like me, he was a bit quirky, with esoteric interests (I wasn’t surprised to learn he cared for distressed ferrets). He had excellent hands for procedures, but roughly hewn, as if he worked on cars or other labor-intensive hobbies in his spare time. 

He had been a chemist and I queried him about van der Waals forces, the subtle quantum interactions by which anesthetic gases erase consciousness, still mysterious to this day. Favoring true ‘chemical’ bonds, Ron disdained the weak and

Medici on 57th – Restaurant | Bakery

 


Delivery & Pick-Up is available 7am – 8pm while dining-rooms throughout Illinois are Closed 


The Medici, originally a gallery and coffee house, was located behind the Green Door bookshop in Hyde Park. Hans Morsbach bought it in 1962 for $1,750. While it remains one of the best coffee houses in the city, the Medici has long offered a full menu. Though it was not easy, and sometimes the odds were long, the Medici grew from humble beginnings to Hyde Park’s largest restaurant. The Medici staff and I are grateful for the loyalty and support of our customers who allowed us to become a success. The Medici is now located on 57th Street between Kimbark and Kenwood Avenues near the University of Chicago campus. We are a two building operation with the combined Bakery & Delicatessen located just east of the Restaurant. Check out our extensive and eclectic menus!

President’s Message

As, I write my last president’s message, I have been reflecting on the last 27 months. Thank you for the amazing opportunity you gave me to earn your trust and support. My last president’s message will be a call to action. Our specialty is under attack from every possible angle… insurance companies, the threat of advanced practice provider (APP) independent practices, CMGs controlling our practice, congress “fixing” the balanced billing issue, etc. 

As a specialty, we need for all emergency physicians to get involved. I often hear: “Why should I join an AAEM committee?” “Why should I write and visit my congressional representative?” “Why should I encourage others to join AAEM and get involved?” “Why should I donate to the AAEM PAC?” “I am content, I am happy where I am!” This is the “laissez-faire” attitude that got us where we are

The History of Medicine: 7 Surprising Facts

Maintaining a comfortable state of health is a goal shared by much of the world’s population past and present, thus the history of health and medicine weaves a thread connecting us with our ancestors’ human experiences. Yet it’s easy to assume that studying it involves either celebrating the ‘eureka moments’ of well-known heroes or laughing at outdated therapies. But, as I set out to show in my book, The History of Medicine in 100 Facts (Amberley Publishing, 2015), medicine’s past features plenty of lesser-known but equally fascinating episodes…

Nicholas Institute of Sports Medicine and Athletic Trauma

Welcome to the Nicholas Institute of Sports Medicine and Athletic Trauma (NISMAT), a world-renowned research, teaching, and treatment center. Established at Lenox Hill Hospital in 1973, NISMAT was the world’s first hospital-based facility committed solely to the study of sports medicine, and has since played a key role in advancing the field, as well as redefining its focus. Once perceived as a discipline concerned only with repairing athletes’ traumatic injuries, sports medicine is now recognized as a science that expands the understanding of the relationship between exercise and fitness at all levels, across every age group. Whether you’re a medical practitioner or a patient, a professional athlete–or a weekend one, an occasional jogger or a marathon runner, woman or man, adolescent or octogenarian, NISMAT brings you the most comprehensive and current medical information and references available. Here, you’ll learn about injury treatment and prevention. Training tips and exercise programs. Physical
