Anaesthesia is a medical specialty administered for the relief of pain and sensation during surgical or invasive procedures. There are different types of anaesthesia which is appropriate for both children and adults. Our anaesthetist will discuss which type of anaelgesia is most appropriate for you. Anaesthesia may be considered to be one of the safest areas of healthcare yet it is important to have a thorough assessment beforehand.
General anaesthesia is usually given for major operations. It induces a state of controlled unconsciousness so you should not feel pain. Local or regional anaesthesia is usually given for minor procedures. Both involve injecting an anaesthetic to numb specific area. As a result, you should not feel pain but may feel pressure and movement.
Our facility offers general anaesthetic for major procedures and local anaesthetics for minor procedures.
