Sedation or Sleep Surgical Procedures
General anaesthesia is used to assist complex surgery by relaxing you, inducing sleep, freeing you of pain, and erasing your memory of the experience.
General anaesthesia is administered by a specialist anaesthetist in a private hospital setting, and ensures that your treatment is comfortable and pain-free.
We use several private hospitals, as well as a number of specialist anaesthetists.
Before undergoing general anaesthesia, you must have fasted for 6 hours prior to your procedure. This means no food, drink, or even a a sip of water.
Your specialist anesthetist will record & monitor your vital measurements, to ensure you are kept medically stable during the procedure.
The general anaesthetic uses a combination of drugs that relax you, induce sleep, frees you of pain, and erases your memory of the experience.
General anaesthesia procedures have an extremely high safety margin, and complications are extremely rare.
If you have any questions regarding treatment under general anaesthesia, please speak with your specialist surgeon or treating anaesthetist.
