Anaesthesia: Patient Safety and Pain Management

Anaesthesia is an important part of your orthopaedic treatment. Many of the questions and concerns patients have when they consider the possibility of surgery, are about anesthesia.

Surgical Risk: The anaesthetist is responsible for the overall safety of the patient in the Orthopaedic Operating Room

Every surgical intervention in humans comes with a level of risk. For this reason, every potential risk must be carefully evaluated and balanced against the expected benefit, before surgery is decided upon. Specialised orthopaedic surgery at the Gelenk Klinik starts with a thorough decision-making process.

Partial Anaesthesia risk reduction and postsurgical pain suppression

Modern ultrasound guided partial anaesthesia can replace general anaesthesia in almost all cases of orthopedic surgery.

Patients are able to stay awake during partial anaesthesia. They may also fall into a shallow sleep during surgery, if only a mild sedative is used. The level and type of anaesthesia chosen, depends on the desire of the individual patient to observe arthroscopic surgery on a screen.
