Anaesthesia and good pain management play a vital role in the treatment and rehabilitation of patients at Austin Health.
Our consultant anaesthetists work in close collaboration with other departments to provide exceptional patient care, equal to the best available anywhere in the world.
We have special expertise in anaesthesia for Liver Transplant Surgery, Complex Aortic Surgery, Thoracic Surgery as well as the full range of other surgical specialities.
Our anaesthetists are involved in the assessment of patients before their operation to select the most appropriate anaesthetic technique for each patient. Patient safety is paramount.
We endeavour to keep all patients and their families well informed about what they will experience before and after their surgery. In the operating theatre, our anaesthetists expertly monitor all patients continuously using the most modern equipment available.
Anaesthesia also manages the Chronic Pain Clinic.
Our anaesthetists have published widely and are involved in research as well as advisory and educational roles outside of the Austin Hospital.
