 Department of Anesthesiology

Administering anesthetics to babies and small children is not the same as anaesthetizing adults. Special training, techniques, vigilance, equipment and approach are required. Anesthesiologists at KKCTH provide exceptional patient care, comparable to any other anesthesia facilities available for children’s surgery anywhere in the world.


The operating rooms are equipped with the most advanced anesthesia machines and monitoring facilities exclusively designed for children’s’ surgery of all age groups. With multi-disciplinary collaboration, dedicated pediatric anesthesiologists provide safe anesthesia to assist challenging surgical procedures in children. A specially designed and equipped induction room allows parents to be by the child’s side till it goes to sleep. Anesthetic technique is planned specific to each child prior to its procedure.


Postoperative pain relief is discussed with the parents. Our anesthesiologists are widely traveled and have visited other children’s hospitals in the world to keep up to date with the latest in the field of pediatric anesthesia.


The anesthesiologists at CHILDS Trust Hospital specialize in the care of children of all ages—from newborn to teenagers—during surgery. Our goal is to make the hospital experience as pleasant as we can: to help manage your child’s anxiety before surgery, as well as his or her pain after surgery—plus support critical bodily functions and minimize the risks associated with surgery.


Our team works closely with doctors in many other departments. We work with dental medicine, gastroenterology,general surgery, neurosurgery,  ophthalmology,  oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthopedic surgery,  otolaryngology, plastic surgery, radiology, urology and other departments. Each year, our team cares for more than 22,000 children.

The Department is also a recognized training center for the Fellowship in Pediatric Anesthesia conducted by the Tamil Nadu Dr. MGR Medical University.
