Anaesthesiologists are specialist doctors who are responsible for safely providing anaesthesia to your child for operations and procedures.

We look after your child during surgery and recovery. We are also closely involved in your child’s pain management after surgery.

Our services

Anaesthesia is a special (kind of) sleep that allows an operation and other medical procedures to be carried out safely and without pain.

The word anaesthesia means ‘loss of sensation’. The anaesthetist gives your child special anaesthetic medicines to cause unconsciousness or ‘induced sleep’.

These medicines temporarily stop the nerve signals that normally keep your child awake from reaching the brain. This is known as a “general anaesthetic”.
