Viola Devany, M.D.

Compassionate Anesthesia for Pediatric

& Special Needs Dental Patients

 Meet Dr. Viola Devany

 

Dr. Devany (affectionately known as Dr. Vi) graduated from Kent State University with bachelor's degrees in chemistry and biology in 1977. She graduated from The Ohio State University College of Medicine in 1980 and went on to complete her Pediatrics residency at Dallas Children's Hospital in 1984. She subsequently finished her anesthesia training by completing her anesthesia residency at UNC Chapel Hill in 1986 and her fellowship in Pediatric Anesthesia at Emory University in 1987. Dr. Devany has been an Anesthesiologist practicing Office Based Anesthesia since 1997.

 

She has previously been on staff at Egleston Childrens Hospital at Emory University, Dayton Childrens Hospital, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center, and Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, OH, with various titles from staff anesthesiologist to associate professor of anesthesiology. Dr. Devany serves on the committee for office-based anesthesia for the American Society of Anesthesiologists.

 

Dr. Devany has raised three pirates, er, sons. Over the years, Dr. Devany's house has been the scene of many sword fights, wrestling matches, Jedi battles, ninja fights, and most frequently, pirate battles. We are pleased to report that all persons and limbs survived the wars and are now thriving in occupations after retiring from such a dangerous lifestyle. Sam graduated from Kent State University with a degree in Biological Chemistry in 2010, and is currently in Medical School at the University of Toledo College of Medicine. Greg graduated from Ohio University in 2012 and is teaching High School Biology and Chemistry in North Carolina with Teach For America. Henry graduated from High School in 2012 and is attending the University of Kentucky studying mechanical engineering.

 

In recent years Dr. Devany’s adventures are more sedate (compared to pirates and sword fights) but not less exciting. She has remarried and gained two adult children. Glenn, her wonderful and kind husband, is a clinical Psychologist who focuses on family counseling, nursing home patients, and cardio-pulmonary rehab. Brady graduated from Asbury Seminary in 2011 and currently is pastoring a small United Methodist Church in Ohio. Leah is a medical assistant in an oncology clinic at the University of Kentucky. This is a busy clan, and all are blessed to have each other.

 

In April 2013 both Dr Vi and Dr. Glenn joined a team of 10 other professionals with the Christian Medical and Dental Association and went to Mongolia for 2 weeks. The team presented a 4 day conference on Congenital Malformations to the Pediatric Medical Community. The rest of the time Dr. Vi was in the operating room with the Pediatric Anesthesiologists and was in complete awe with how well they do with so little resources. There is so much we take for granted. It was a successful trip by all measurements, from sharing knowledge and skills, and making working relationships to build on in the future. There are many great stories to share from this trip and we hope to add a page with picture and explanations.
