Department and Services


Anesthesia is one of the most important branches of all surgeries. It is up to the skills and expertise of the anaesthesiologist to keep the pain away from the patients during and after the operation. This calls for a combination of medicines (for local and general anaesthesia), equipments to deliver them into the patient's body, and accurate monitoring devices to keep track and adjust the dosages as per the patient's conditions.

      of postoperative pain.
