Anesthesiology and pain management
The philosophy of the whole department of anaesthesiology is: maximum comfort and minimal patient load.
The ARIM (Anesthesiology, Resuscitation and Intensive Medicine) specialization deals with various forms of general and local numbness and control and treatment of patients’ functional disorders during surgeries in the operating theatres or in specialized wards. Another field of interest is the treatment of acute or chronic pain by physical, pharmacological or other procedures.
For all surgical disciplines at the Ort-Art clinic, we provide anaesthesiological services according to the surgeon’s requirements. Individual surgeries are performed in general or local anaesthesia or in a combination of both methods.
Anaesthesia is performed by erudite physicians and nurses who are able to offer optimal approach considering the nature of the surgery and the personality of the patient. They use a wide range of procedures and pharmaceuticals with an emphasis on patient’s safety and comfort both during the surgery and in the post-operative period and are able to adequately address possible complications throughout the patient’s stay in the health care facility.
We treat pain in the early postoperative periods in all patients. In order to reduce postoperative pain as much as possible, a suitable anaesthetic method is also selected. In most patients, long-term pain relief is ensured using local anaesthesia techniques. Oral analgesia requires only oral intake of non-opioid analgesics. Some patients do not require analgesics at all.
Patients with long term chronic pain are treated with pharmacological and non – pharmacological procedures using a multidisciplinary approach. Comprehensive therapies include systemic and topical administration of analgesics or supportive drugs including invasive procedures, auriculotherapy, myoskeletal medicine and other methods.
