Department Facilities

The Department of Anaesthesiology at Mahatma Gandhi Medical College and Research Institute provides anaesthesia services to 15 modular operation theatres, catering to all speciality and super-specialities, as well as 3 emergency theatres for trauma and obstetrics. The department has a dedicated acute pain service which caters to perioperative pain services, acute pain conditions on OPD/IPD basis and also for on arrival pain management for polytrauma in the casualty. There is also a dedicated chronic pain team for all chronic pain and musculoskeletal interventions. The department runs a separate vascular access service for both central and peripheral lines for adults, paediatric and neonates.

Ultrasound guidance has become the norm for most procedures done in the operation theatres and pain clinics. This practice allows our University to emerge as one of the leading institutions in research and education in the field of regional anaesthesia.

Available Equipment

To support teaching, training and advanced research in the field of ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia, the department has a current state-of-the-art point of care ultrasound equipment (Fujifilm SonoSite X-Porte). SonoSite X-Porte features proprietary beam-forming XDI™ technology, compound imaging capability, and advanced signal analysis algorithms. This provides ample opportunities to faculty and trainees for advanced research in the field of ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia.

Educational Support

AORA – FUJIFILM SonoSite Inland Fellowship Program Mahatma Gandhi Medical College and Research Institute have partnered with Academy of Regional Anesthesia – India (AORA) and Fujifilm SonoSite to offer a Regional Anesthesia Observership Program. In this one-week observership program, the selected medical postgraduates observe and explore the benefits of regional anaesthesia using ultrasound guidance at MGMCRI, SBV University.
