Research summary

Over the past 25 years, my research has focused on optimizing cerebral and other perioperative outcomes after cardiac surgery. This has encompassed a full range of research settings from laboratory-based research involving cardiopulmonary bypass in experimental rodent models, to multicenter trials of neurologic monitoring using cerebral oximetry.


Dr. Grocott completed medical school at the University of Saskatchewan in 1990, and after finishing an anesthesia residency at the University of Manitoba in 1995, he went on to complete a cardiothoracic anesthesiology fellowship at Duke University where he later joined the faculty, advancing to tenured professor in 2006.

In 2007, he moved to the University of Manitoba where he currently serves as professor (with tenure) in the departments of anesthesiology, perioperative and pain medicine, and surgery. He is the former editor-in-chief of the Canadian Journal of Anesthesia. He has published more than 300 peer-reviewed articles, abstracts, and book chapters on a range of topics related to cerebral and other perioperative outcomes after cardiac surgery.
