Anaesthesiologists provide all methods of anaesthesia before surgeries and operations as well as afterwards. Anaesthesiologists also take care of patients with chronic pain.

Methods of anaesthesia:

• GENERAL ANAESTHESIA – administered using intravenous drugs through a previously inserted IV cannula. Within a short period of time after drug administration, the patient falls asleep and is unaware of the procedure being carried out.
• PERINEURAL (CONDUCTION) ANAESTHESIA – with this type of anaesthesia, a given part of the body, such as a leg or an arm, is temporarily deprived of mobility and sensation (as a result of the drugs affecting the nerves that conduct pain and motor stimuli as well as nerve plexuses).
• SUBARACHNOID ANAESTHESIA – during surgeries, patients can retain consciousness or ask for a sleeping pill. Depending on the type of drugs administered, this type of anaesthesia may last from 2 to 5 hours. Within a short period of time, the anaesthetised area experiences painlessness and impaired physical mobility. The sensation of touch may be retained.
• EPIDURAL ANAESTHESIA – a type of local anaesthesia, which involves insertion of a thin catheter into the epidural space inside the spinal column (backbone), through which anaesthetics are administered in order to alleviate the sensation of pain.
• PERIPHERAL NERVES AND PLEXUS BLOCKS – this type of anaesthesia is administered during surgeries on the upper and lower extremities. It involves administration of a local anaesthetic into the area of nerve plexuses and trunks in order to immobilise the operative site.
