Neuro-anaesthesia

Overview
Our doctors

Neurosurgical anesthesia or neuroanesthesia is a branch of anesthesiology which is involved in anesthetizing patients undergoing brain or spinal cord surgery. Neuroanaesthesia continues to develop and expand. It is a speciality where the knowledge and expertise of the anaesthetist may directly influence patient outcome. Evolution of neurosurgical practice for eg. minimally invasive and endoscopic procedure, is accompanied by new challenges for the anesthetist.

The goals of neuroanesthesia are the provision of good operative conditions i.e. a relaxed brain, maintenance of optimum cerebral perfusion and oxygenation throughout surgery, assessment and preservation of neurological function, minimizing interference with intraoperative neuromonitoring and a rapid, high-quality recovery.

Neuroanesthetic management is unique because the very organ the anesthetics act on, is operated upon by the surgeon. Therefore both the surgeon and the anesthetisiologist target the same organ.

The type of anesthesia used depends on the type of surgery being performed.

There are various surgical options in the management of intracranial pathologies.
