The Department of Anaesthesiology at Velocity Hospitals, provides anesthesia services to all surgical specialties like cardiac, renal transplants, pediatric surgery including neonates, vascular and endovascular, endourology, and orthopedics including trauma and joint replacements and gynecology. Pre-anesthesia check-up prior to any surgery is mandatory in order to decide on which modality of anesthesia is suitable for each patient. The department includes skilled and experienced anesthesiologists who are also qualified in pain medicine including labor analgesia.
Pain management is a sub-specialty of anesthesiology used by many medical specialties as an approach for easing suffering and improving the quality of life for those living with chronic pain. At Velocity Hospitals, the pain management team includes the pain consultant /anesthesiologist, primary consultant of the patient, psychiatrists, neurologists, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists. Pain sometimes resolves promptly once the underlying trauma or pathology has healed. In some cases, the pain is treated with drugs such as analgesics and (occasionally) anxiolytics. Effective management of long-term pain, however, frequently requires the coordinated efforts of the management team.
