Thomas Linwood Bennett, MD: one of New York City's first prominent physician anesthetists.

Abstract

Thomas Linwood Bennett (1868-1932) was one of New York City's first prominent physician anesthetists. He was the first dedicated anesthetist at the Hospital for the Ruptured and Crippled, subsequently renamed Hospital for Special Surgery. He subsequently practiced at multiple institutions throughout New York City as one of the first physicians in the United States to dedicate his entire practice to the emerging field of anesthesia. Bennett was considered the preeminent anesthetist of his time, excelling at research, innovation, education, and clinical care.
