Department of Anesthesiology
Most people think of their anesthesiologist only as the "doctor behind the mask" who helps them sleep through surgery and who wakes them up when surgery is over. The anesthesiologist in fact plays a vital role in the patient's life. The responsibility of safely maintaining the patient's vital signs right through the medical/surgical procedure, in addition to management of pain during and after procedures, lies solely with the Anesthesiologist.
Our Anesthesiology Unit comprising of a team of highly experienced and proficient anesthesiologists and duly updated Medical and Paramedical personnel is in-fact the cornerstone of our hospital's success as a major trauma and surgical center. The keen medical acumen and wide range of medical expertise exhibited by this team has contributed tremendously to our growing recognition as the apex center for Minimally Invasive Surgery and other Surgical Procedures.

We, at Sunrise Hospital, believe in educating our patients thoroughly on their conditions and the proposed procedures, along with the expected results. We understand the importance of doctor-patient relations and ensure that our team is extremely warm, caring and approachable. We ensure that we spend adequate time with each patient, to clear their doubts or fears to make them as comfortable as possible. This also gives us more time to evaluate the patient on all aspects, which is essential for the selection and administration of the right type and measure of anesthesia, which in turn is dependent on the physical and the medical history of the patient.
In addition to administering anesthesia medications before the surgery, the anesthesiologist also will:
- Monitor major bodily functions (such as breathing, heart rate and rhythm, body temperature, blood pressure, and blood oxygen levels) during surgery
- Address any problems that might arise during surgery.
- Manage pain after surgery.
- Keep the patient as comfortable as possible before, during, and after surgery.
Please feel free to direct any questions or express any of your concerns to your anesthesiologist. Your anesthesiologist wants to make your surgical and anesthesia experience as safe and pleasant as possible.
