anaesthesia department in hospital

The Anaesthesia Department in hospital provides top class anaesthetic services for all surgical specialties within the hospital, in addition to the 24-hour on-call emergency cover.

Our team of well-qualified anesthesia specialists in the anaesthesia department in hospital act as perioperative physicians by optimizing the pre-operative status of the patient, safely anaesthetizing them while maintaining their normal physiology, providing quality pain relief during the surgery and also managing the post-operative care. We also undertake non-surgical pain relief and critical care management for other medical illnesses.
