Treatments & Procedures
The Department of Anaesthesiology of Sri Ramakrishna Hospital administers advanced anaesthesia and maintains the highest levels of professionalism. Our pre-assessment clinic conducts an evaluation of each patient prior to the surgical procedure he or she is to undergo.
The evaluation process takes into consideration a host of things. This includes the patient’s complete medical history, his or her current state of health, the planned surgical procedure, the desired outcome and so on. It allows the anaesthesiologist to make judgements on what is the safest anaesthesia plan for the patient in question.
Based on the decisions arrived at, the anaesthesia plan is explained to the patient in detail. This dispels any fears and myths the patient might have and puts the patient’s mind at ease. The rapport created is important to reducing anxiety on the operating table, before commencing the procedure.
The Department of Anaesthesiology of Sri Ramakrishna Hospital maintains the highest levels of expertise and administers the most advanced forms of anaesthesia including conscious sedation for awake craniotomies among others. We have successfully treated patients ranging in age from just a few hours old to more than 90 years. Our track record with high risk obstetric patients, who are critically ill, is excellent. We offer epidurals to keep our patients pain free during labour. Our team is adept in dealing with procedures relating to renal transplants. We also provide day care services which allow patients to return home on the same day of surgery.
In keeping with our hospital’s mission to provide healthcare of international standards, we maintain a brilliant safety record through our teamwork and commitment to quality.
