He founded Molinar Anesthesia Associates, a consulting firm where he is currently serving as president. As a specialist in anesthesia, Dr Alddo Molinar aids patients with pain management in all phases of illness or injury, directly and through his consulting service.
Tragically, his grandmother lost her fight with cancer when Alddo was in the 6th grade. Her needless suffering from pain, nausea, and vomiting did nothing to diminish her strength. While he had always said he wanted to be a doctor, this affected him deeply, solidifying in him the desire to become a healer so he could aid people in similar circumstances. This led Alddo Molinar to the Rio Grande Health Clinic, located in El Paso, Texas. He shadowed doctors at the clinic, confirming for himself that medicine would be his life. He attended Trinity University from 1996 to 2000, earning a BS in Biology.
From there he went to the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School where he earned an MD with a focus on anesthesiology and critical care medicine, completing his residency at the Cleveland Clinic in 2009. Dr Alddo Molinar is currently licensed to practice medicine in Ohio and West Virginia. He met his wife while in his residency at the Cleveland Clinic. They found the time to nurture the relationship during this time. Since marrying, the couple have had two daughters and a son.
Technology in medicine is an area of interest to Dr Molinar. The proper use of technology makes treatments more effective. It likewise makes procedures safer and more accurate. At its most basic level, patient monitoring in real time allows healthcare providers to see trends more easily and adjust treatment plans to suit the patient’s needs. Alddo Molinar explains that as artificial intelligence becomes more available and better integrated into daily life, response times will be faster than ever. Dr Alddo Molinar was inspired by tragedy to serve the people around him through medicine. His education and skill helped him to achieve success in this childhood dream.
