At KIMS, Department of Anesthesiology, our mission is to excel in all aspects of Anesthesia, Pain Management, and Critical Care.
Anesthesiology is the practice of medicine dedicated to the relief of pain and the total care of the surgical patient before, during, and after surgery. Without anesthesia, many of modern medicine's greatest benefits would not exist. All the patients are touched by the science of anesthesiology and the skill and dedication of their anesthesiologist.
The anesthesiologist is the peri-operative physician who provides medical care to patients throughout their surgical experience. This includes evaluating the patient before surgery (pre-operative), consulting with the surgeon, providing pain control and monitoring life functions during surgery (intra-operative), supervising care after surgery (post-operative), and medically discharging the patient from the recovery unit.
KIMS Hospital has a world class anesthesiology department and the primary clinical activity of the physicians is at KIMS Hospital. The hospital administers more than 15,000 anesthetics a year.
