The Department of Anesthesia & Critical Care is one of the younger specialties of medicine dealing with obtunding or minimizing pain associated with surgery or any invasive procedure. It is a relatively new branch which has been in existence for a little over 150 years and its growth in leaps and bounds has made complex procedures and surgery much easier now. This department is dedicated to management of critically ill patients and anesthetic management of complex surgeries. The specialty has spawned into newer branches like intensive care, pain management, and emergency medicine.
The department has a team of experienced and dedicated anesthesiologists skilled in various sub specialties like Cardiac, Neuro, Pain as well as newer and upcoming specialties like Bariatric (obesity) surgery. The anesthetists are helped by the state of the art anesthetic equipment.
Services provided also include preoperative checkups and post-operative pain management team.
