Frederick E. Sieber, MD

Core Leader, Pilots & Exploratory Studies

Dr. Frederick E. Sieber is a professor of anesthesiology and critical care medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Additionally, he serves as Director of Clinical Research of the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine at Johns Hopkins Bayview Hospital.

Dr. Sieber’s broad research interest is identifying and optimizing anesthetic management of the elderly cognitively impaired patient with the goal of decreasing postoperative delirium. In the past, his research has focused on the hip fracture population. Specifically, we was site PI for the FOCUS trial which examined the role of blood transfusion in determining cardiovascular and functional outcomes in hip fracture patients. Furthermore, as PI on the STRIDE RCT, he studied the effects of anesthetic dose on development of delirium in older patients undergoing hip fracture repair.  Also, he was a co-investigator on the multicenter REGAIN PICORI grant which examines patient centered outcomes comparing spinal vs general anesthesia during hip fracture repair. Dr. Sieber also works in conjunction with the departments of geriatrics, Pepper Center, and orthopedic surgery on a recently funded U2/U3 project examining resiliency in older knee replacement patients.
