There are six fully equipped operation theatres in the hospital with advanced anaesthesia machines and state of the art anaesthesia equipment. Dr L H Hiranandani Hospital believes in evidence based quality anaesthesia in a safe environment. We routinely provide anaesthesia for bariatric surgery, laparoscopic and thoracoscopic surgeries, computer assisted joint replacement surgery, complex spine surgery, fractures, cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, renal transplant and procedures for infertility apart from all the routine surgeries. There are various State-of-the-Art anaesthesia monitoring facilities (including Entropy for monitoring the depth of Anaesthesia, neuromuscular monitoring, anaesthesia agent and other gases monitoring, cardiac output monitoring etc) apart from the routine monitoring like pulse oximetry, ECG analysis, invasive and non-invasive blood pressure monitoring etc.
We not only deliver anaesthesia services in the operation theatres but are also actively involved in :
- Pain Relief after Joint Replacement Surgery
- Pain Relief during Child Birth (Painless Labour)
- Anaesthesia for various radiological procedures like M.R.I, C.T scan etc
- Anaesthesia in the Endoscopy room
- Monitored Anaesthesia Care for various procedures taking place in the Cath lab (Complex Angioplasties, Pacemaker Implantation, DSA etc)
Besides the routine rendering of anaesthesia services; the department also runs the following clinics :
Perioperative Pain Management Clinic for Joint Replacement Surgeries :
The anaesthesiologists are actively involved in rendering pain relief to patients undergoing joint replacement surgeries. They follow 'Clinical Pathway' using Regional Anaesthesia techniques like an Epidural or Femoral Catheter along with systemic painkillers to provide sustained pain relief to all the patients of Joint Arthroplasty. These patients can thereby undergo good physiotherapy and help in early mobilization of the patients after the surgery.
Painless Labour :
The team of the anaesthesiologists is available round the clock to provide relief to labouring patients. They utilize the most modern evidence based techniques to provide superior type of analgesia to the patients undergoing labour and delivery. Coupled with good monitoring equipments; both for the mother and the unborn ensures that the process of labour and the delivery is a pleasant experience in our hospital.
Perioperative Pain Management for High Risk Patients :
The Department of Anaesthesia caters to a variety of patients undergoing supramajor surgeries. Evidence based knowledge of ultra modern medications and drug delivery systems ensures not only good pain relief for the patients; but also makes the perioperative period safer. The patients can participate in the physiotherapy programmes thereby ensuring speedy recovery.
Pain Clinic :
This specialized field of Anaesthesia deals with Chronic Pain Management. We treat Cancer Pain, Headache, backache and other types of neuropathic pains in a comprehensive way. We not only provide medical management to these patients; but also perform necessary evidence based interventions to relieve the patients of their chronic pain. Interventions like Transforaminal Epidural Steroid injections, sympatholytic blocks and celiac plexus blocks are given to patients to provide them sustained pain relief.
