With a primary focus on anesthesiology, Dr. Richard Rust provides pain relief during surgery and in outpatient settings for patients of all ages. Currently employed by Northside Anesthesia Services LLC, Richard Rust serves St. Vincent’s Hospitals throughout Carmel and Fishers, Indiana, and St. Vincent’s Women’s Hospital in Indianapolis.

Before surgery, Dr. Rust helps to determine whether patients are prepared to withstand the rigors of their procedures. If so, he prescribes and administers the medications needed to render them unconscious so that surgery can proceed. He has also written a book on skin care titled “Skin Care for Men, Single Cream Fountain of Youth.”

In his free time, Dr. Rust enjoys working on cars and taking in the landscape in his Volvo C70. A dedicated father, he enjoys reading to his children, and keeps in tune with their favorite literature. A member of a family of foodies, he likes to cook and watch the family-friendly programs on the Food Network.
