Explore Various Types of Anaesthesia at Gleneagles HealthCity Chennai

When it comes to surgical procedures, choosing the right type of anesthesia is crucial to ensure the patient's comfort and safety. At Gleneagles HealthCity Chennai, we offer a range of anesthesia options, each tailored to specific medical procedures and patient needs. Our expert anaesthetists are well-versed in administering these types of anesthesia, ensuring your surgical experience is as smooth and painless as possible.

General Anaesthesia

General anesthesia is commonly used for extensive surgeries or procedures where the patient needs to be completely unconscious and unaware. It involves the administration of medication that induces a deep sleep-like state, making the patient unresponsive to pain and unaware of the surgery. General anesthesia ensures the patient's comfort and safety during complex surgeries.

Regional Anaesthesia

Regional anesthesia is typically employed for surgeries involving a specific region of the body, such as limb surgeries or childbirth. It involves numbing a larger area of the body, often by injecting anesthetic agents near the nerves that supply sensation to that region. This allows patients to remain conscious during the procedure while ensuring they don't feel pain in the localized area.

Local Anaesthesia

For minor procedures or treatments, local anesthesia is the preferred choice. It involves the direct application or injection of anesthetic agents to a small, specific area, such as a minor skin surgery or dental procedure. Patients remain fully conscious, but they experience no pain in the treated area.


In some cases, a mild form of anesthesia known as sedation may be used. Sedation induces a state of relaxation and drowsiness, reducing anxiety and discomfort during certain medical procedures. It is often used in conjunction with local or regional anesthesia to enhance the patient's comfort.


Choosing the Right Anaesthesia

The choice of anesthesia depends on several factors, including the type and duration of the surgery, the patient's medical history, and their preferences. Our experienced anaesthetists at Gleneagles HealthCity Chennai will carefully evaluate your individual needs and work with your surgical team to determine the most suitable anesthesia option for your procedure. At Gleneagles HealthCity Chennai, patient safety and comfort are our top priorities. Our expert anaesthetists are trained in a wide range of anesthesia techniques to ensure that your surgical experience is as smooth and pain-free as possible.
