Kristin Yurth, CRNA, MSNA, APRN
Kristin Yurth is a board certified CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist) with nearly a decade of anesthesia experience. She received her Master of Science in Nurse Anesthesia from Newman University in 2012. During her training, she was selected to participate in a mission trip to the Dominican Republic, where she provided anesthesia for the medically underserved. Since beginning practice as a CRNA, Kristin has performed thousands of anesthetics for patients undergoing a vast array of surgical procedures. In addition to office-based anesthesia, she provides anesthesia for a rural hospital in Kansas as well as a level II trauma center in Missouri.
Kristin joined Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of St. Joseph in 2018. She says, “I realize patients are often nervous about their oral surgery. My goal is to ease those fears and provide the best anesthetic experience. I want patients to know that I will be with them throughout their entire surgery and my purpose is to keep them comfortable, asleep, and most importantly—to keep them safe.”
Kristin is certified by the National Board of Certification and Recertification of Nurse Anesthetists. She is licensed as CRNA in both Missouri and Kansas. Kristin provides anesthesia for patients of all ages. She has a special interest in caring for pediatric patients.
Outside of work, Kristin enjoys spending time with her husband Deven, and their three young children, Lincoln, Knox, and Barrett.
