GILLETTE, WY – Dr. John Mansell has received recertification in the subspecialty of Pain Medicine from the
American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA), valid through 2024.
The American Board of Anesthesiology is an independent, nonprofit organization first founded in 1937 as affiliate of the American Board of Surgery to provide board certification to individuals who have met a defined standard of education, training and knowledge in the field of anesthesiology.
The ABA is one of the 24 medical specialty boards (Member Boards) that make up the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Through ABMS, the boards work together to set and sustain common standards of expertise and professionalism that each uses to evaluate candidates for board certification and specialists to maintain their certification. Medical specialty certification is the largest standard-setting and assessment process established and maintained by a profession.
A Board certified anesthesiologist is a physician who provides medical management and consultation during the perioperative period, in pain medicine and in critical care medicine. At the time of application and at the time of initial certification, a diplomate of the Board must possess knowledge, judgment, adaptability, clinical skills, technical facility and personal characteristics sufficient to carry out the entire scope of anesthesiology practice independently without accommodation or with reasonable accommodation.
Once certified, ABS diplomates must maintain their certification by completing continuing education and assessment activities, including a written examination at 10-year intervals. Since 1976, the ABS has issued time-limited certificates that must be renewed every 10 years.
Dr. Mansell practices at Wyoming Interventional Pain Management/Northern Plains Anesthesia Associates in Gillette.
