Dr. Augusto Alinea, MDwas born in Brooklyn, New York. At the age of five, his family moved to Long Island, NY where his father worked as an Anesthesiologist. Augusto’s mother was a registered nurse by trade. She had opted to put her nursing career on hold prior to their move to Brooklyn to be able to raise her five children.
Augusto graduated from high school in Long Island, NY and attended college at Lock Have University in Pennsylvania where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. After graduation Dr. Alinea made the decision to follow in his father’s footsteps and begin a career in Anesthesiology. He attended Ross University School of Medicine in the West Indies and during his 3rd year of medical school attended medical clerkships at Yale and Boston University. In 1987, he graduated from Medical School with honors. Dr. Alinea completed his internship at Chicago Medical School and his residency in Anesthesiology at Loyola University Medical Center. In his final year of residency at Loyola University, a 700 bed hospital in Maywood, IL he was appointed chief resident. In this role Dr. Alinea gained vast experience in a wide variety of anesthetics.
Dr. Alinea joined Stevens Point Anesthesia, S.C. in July 1991 and provided anesthesia services to St. Michael’s Hospital in Stevens Point. Soon after his practice began, he was appointed as Medical Director of Anesthesia and continued to practice at St. Michael’s Hospital until 2006. It was then he decided to partner with the medical group at the Ambulatory Surgical Center of Stevens Point and has been providing anesthesia services for the Ambulatory Surgical Center since that time.
Dr. Alinea’s main emphasis is listening to patients and providing a personalized pleasant surgical experience. He attempts to get to know each of his patients on an individual basis, which allows him to provide enhanced support and comfort for them. It is this approach which alleviates the stress patients may have on their upcoming procedures, which ultimately prevents potential complications and promotes a timely recovery.
Dr. Alinea and his wife Gay have three children, Corinne (married to Timothy), Danielle and Augusto Jr, along with one granddaughter Lacey.
