Our team at the Department of Anaesthesiology provides anaesthesia to help patients tolerate operations and procedures in comfort and safety. This may be a local anaesthetic where the patient may remain awake, a local anaesthetic with sedation to make the patient drowsy or a full general anaesthetic where the patient will be asleep. This surgical speciality is essential for a number surgeries ranging from cardiac, renal transplants, paediatric surgery including neonates, vascular and endovascular, endourology and orthopaedics including trauma and joint replacements and gynaecology.
Our specialised support is also extended in the postoperative period to patients, having impaired vital functions, in critical care areas. Such support is also offered to most challenging medical and surgical patients suffering from critical illness in the Critical Care Unit. Our anaesthesia and critical care services coupled with pain management, palliative care and labour analgesia is delivered by a team of dedicated, competent and compassionate clinicians with decades of experience.
