Thoracic anaesthesia

We'll provide you with anaesthetic and pain-relief services if you're having thoracic (chest) surgery.

You can need surgery in your chest for many reasons, both for investigative procedures and for more complex operations aimed at curing disease. Most of these operations require a general anaesthetic, which is provided by our team. We'll monitor you during your operation, and in the early part of your recovery.

Supporting our surgeons in giving you the best possible care, we provide anaesthesia aimed at minimising side-effects such as nausea and vomiting, and provide pain relief techniques to help you have a comfortable and speedy recovery.

We also help to support the use of new techniques in surgery, such as minimally invasive and video assisted surgery. These techniques can dramatically reduce pain from your operation, and help you to recover and leave hospital quicker.
