Anesthesiology is the medical speciality concerned with the total preoperative care of our patients before, during and after surgery. It includes anaesthesia, intensive care medicines, pain medicine and critical emergency medicine.
Scope of Services
General anesthesia: It is a combination of medications that put you in a sleep-like state before a complicated surgery or other medical procedure.
Local anaesthesia: It is a procedure to induce the absence of sensation in a specific part of the body. It generally aims to induce local analgesia, that is, local insensitivity to pain, although other local senses may be affected as well.
Epidural anaesthesia: This type of anaesthesia is used to block the pain in a particular region of the body. Epidural anaesthesia aims to provide analgesia or pain relief which leads to a total lack of feeling.
Spinal anaesthesia: It is also known as a spinal block, intradural block and intrathecal block and subarachnoid block. It is a form of neuraxial regional anaesthesia. It involves the injection of a local anaesthetic or opioid into the subarachnoid space, through a fine needle.
Critical care: Anesthesiologists are exclusively qualified to coordinate the care of patients in intensive care or the critical care unit because of their extensive training in clinical physiology/pharmacology and resuscitation.
Regional anaesthesia: It is used to make a specific part of the body numb to relieve pain or allow surgical procedures to be done peacefully.
