Our Anaesthetics

We Provide Quality Anaesthetics Performed By Specialists

A computerized infusion pump that continuously supplies the local anaesthetic drug via an epidural catheter can also be used in the long term management of pain. Epidural injections are safe and very effective in controlling pain. 

Spinal injections are a safe and very effective way to give anaesthesia. They are administered by an anaesthesiologist who will also explain the technique to you. Please ask the anaesthesiologist during the pre-operative visit to clarify any uncertainty you may have. 

This block is administered through an injection at the side of the neck between the interscalene muscles or just above or below the clavicle. This is in general a very safe and effective method of pain relief for the shoulder, arm or hand. The block is administered by your anaesthesiologist who will explain the technique to you.

Although the most common method for regional anaesthesia of the lower limb is a spinal or epidural, there is a place for the use of these lower limb blocks. Although they can be technically difficult and may require multiple injections, they are safe and give good post- operative pain relief in the absence of a total sympathectomy. These blocks are administered through an injection in the groin, through or below the buttocks, behind the knee joint or around the ankle depending on the type of lower limb block and if it is administered alone or in combination.
