Pain relief in surgery
Before the operation, a patient will meet with the anesthesiologist for an evaluation. The anesthesiologist at our hospital will make a plan for the operation that takes into account the individual needs of the patient. On the day of the surgery, the anesthesiologist supervises the administration of medication so that the patient will not experience pain.

During the procedure, the surgeon or the doctor carries out all the surgical work, but the anesthesiologist will continue to be responsible for the medical management of that patient.
They monitor the patient’s bodily functions, assess the best way to treat all the vital organs, and provide a balance of medications suited to the individual’s needs.
The functions they need to monitor include:
• heart rate and rhythm
• blood pressure
• body temperature
• fluid balance
The anesthesiologist controls these vital measures, the patient’s level of pain, and unconsciousness throughout the operation.
After the procedure of surgery, the doctor continues to be responsible for the patient’s overall care. They will reverse the effects of the anesthesia and then continue to evaluate the patient and keep them comfortable as they recover.
During this process, the anesthesiologist will direct other health workers regarding this, including specialist nurses.
