Dr. Zuo specializes in providing anesthesia care to patients undergoing surgery. She is currently undergoing advanced training to specialize in regional anesthesia, a specialty that uses ultrasound to guide placement of numbing medication around nerve bundles around the body. These procedures are done sometimes for surgical anesthesia, and sometimes for post-operative pain control. She enjoys performing these skilled procedures in addition to providing her patients with perioperative care.

In her spare time, Dr. Zuo enjoys spending time outdoors, eating all kinds of ethnic food, dancing swing and two-step, and generally exploring the world around her.
