The Department of Anesthesiology & Operating Theatre

Overview

Anesthesiologists are physician specialists and essential members of the surgical team. They provides complete preoperative evaluation to assess the patient prior to scheduled operative procedures as well as ensure comfort and safety during surgery and make informed medical judgments regarding critical life functions, such as breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure. Anesthesiologists also immediately diagnose and treat medical problems that arise during surgery or recovery.
