Anaesthesia & ICU

Anaesthesia and pain management have witnessed tremendous changes and improvements in the last few decades. Our anaesthetists are highly qualified and are used in dealing with difficult high risk cases/situations. This coupled with state of the art machines and operating theatres ensures that both surgeons and patients are in safe hands and in the best possible environment.

Pregnant ladies and paediatric patients constitute a large percentage of the patient population that our anaesthetists help take care of. Managing pain during labour is of particular interest to this department. The Farah Hospital's anaesthetists are experts in tackling labour related pains whether by simple measures such as inhalational gas and pain relief injections to more effective measures such as epidural- we like to call it "happydural"! If on the other hand an elective caesarean section is scheduled, our anaesthetists would recommend undergoing the surgery under spinal anaesthesia where by the mother is awake and alert to enjoy these precious moments with her husband.

In addition to being experts in the labour ward, the anaesthetists at The Farah Hospital are also highly qualified in dealing with high risk cases. Indeed babies as young as 24 hrs and as little as 645 grams have been anaesthetized with fantastic results. On the other end of the spectrum, patients as old as 93 years of age and as heavy as 160 Kg's have also been taken care of. Other specialties that our anaesthetists deal with on a daily basis include:

  • ENT
  • Paediatric & neonate surgery
  • Plastic surgery
  • Breast surgery
  • General surgery (gall bladder, appendix, thyroid‚ ...)
  • Laparoscopic surgery
  • Dental surgery
  • Urological surgery
