Anesthesiology is the practice of medicine dedicated to total care of the surgical patient before, during and after surgery.
Anesthesiologists apply their knowledge of medicine to fulfill their primary role in the operating room, which is not only to ensure comfort of patient during surgery, but also to make informed medical decisions to protect the patient.
Department of anesthesia provides specialized care for all surgical specialties including Neurosurgical, Pediatric, Gynecological, Obstetric, Neonatal, Oncological, general surgical procedures, ENT, Plastic surgery, Renal Transplant etc.
The medical expertise of the anesthesiologists enables them to alleviate pain. Pain has been designated as the fifth vital sign. Acute and chronic pain management constitutes a priority of department.
The role of the anesthesiologist extends beyond the operating room. The anesthesiologist is responsible for the preoperative assessment of the patient, an evaluation process that carefully considers both the patient’s current state of health and the planned surgical procedure that allows anesthesiologists to make judgments about the safest anesthesia plan for each individual patient.
The anesthesiologist is also responsible for the well being of the patient postoperatively while the patient emerges from the effects of anesthesia.
The Department of Anesthesiology has 7 consultants in addition to senior residents. There are 10 state of the art operation theatres with modern anesthesia machines and advance patient monitoring devices. We conduct on an average of 20-25 operations every day of various surgical specialties.
