ANESTHESIA PROVIDERS

Jeff Glasgow

CRNA / PARTNER

Little did Jeff Glasgow know while training at KU Medical Center that his eagerness to assist other departments with anesthesia outside of the operating room would lead to the foundation of Advanced Specialty Anesthesia. As the principle founder, Jeff recognized the need for anesthesia services in the office setting for children as well as adults with special needs. His love for the Jayhawks compelled him to complete his Master of Science in Nurse Anesthesia from KU Medical Center. Jeff enjoys spending as much time as possible with his wife, Kerry of over twenty years and his children Grant, Kennedy and Madison.
