Our team of anaesthesiologists are trained in the branch of neuro-anaesthesia and offer anaesthesia services for all major and minor surgeries, such as total knee & hip replacements, and spine surgeries

What is Anesthesiology?

Anesthesiology is the practice of medicine dedicated to the relief of pain and total care of the surgical patient before, during and after surgery. The education of today’s anesthesiologists has kept pace with their expanding role in offering the highest quality health care available anywhere in the world.

What is the role of an anesthesiologist?

In the operating room, they are responsible for the medical management and anesthetic care of the patient throughout the duration of the surgery. The anesthesiologist must carefully match the anesthetic needs of each patient to that patient’s medical condition, responses to anesthesia and the requirements of the surgery.

At Kamineni, we offer a wide range of round-the-clock emergency medical & surgical services. Our team of anaesthesiologists are trained in the branch of neuro-anaesthesia and offer deliberate hypotensive anaesthesia for procedures in neuroendoscopy, intracranial vascular malformations and aneurysm clipping.

Our team also offers anaesthesia services for major orthopaedic surgeries, such as total knee & hip replacements, and spine surgeries. In the field of uro-anaesthesia, the team has the distinction of conducting a number of renal transplants.

During and post-operation

Postoperative pain relief for a patient is as important if not more than the blocking of pain during a surgical procedure, to ensure the health and recuperation of the patient in question. After such procedures, anesthesiologists are responsible in advising the right kind of pain-killers and other employable techniques for proper rest and relief after a surgery.

Childbirth

During childbirth, the role of an anesthesiologist is doubly crucial as he/she is managing the lives of both the mother and the child. Administering epidural or other advisable anesthetic while ensuring proper sustaining of the vitals of both the mother and the baby becomes important.

Emergency Medical Care

The department of anesthesiology is also vital in many emergency situations. Airway management, pulmonary resuscitation, advanced life support and pain control, are some of the duties taken up by our team of anesthesiologists.

At Kamineni Hospital our expert team is equipped for any medical circumstance. Mechanical ventilatory therapy is offered for patients of respiratory diseases, cerebrovascular accidents, neuro trauma and neuro surgical patients. Our department is recognized for national board of examinations and offers PG degree courses in anaesthesiology (DNB).

Achievements

We have the distinction of performing the first ‘awake cardiac surgery’ under epidural anaesthesia in Andhra Pradesh & Telangana. We have also successfully performed liver transplantations for adults and children.
