Anaesthesia and pain management are two closely related fields that deal with the relief of pain and discomfort during medical procedures. The conditions that are treated under anaesthesia and pain management may include:
Surgery, which may require general anaesthesia or regional anaesthesia to numb a specific part of the body.
Chronic pain, which is pain that lasts for more than three months and can be caused by conditions such as arthritis, nerve damage, or cancer.
Acute pain, which is pain that occurs suddenly and can be caused by injury, surgery, or illness.
Cancer pain, which is pain associated with cancer and its treatment.
Headaches, such as migraines or tension headaches.
Back pain, which can be caused by injury or degenerative conditions of the spine.
Neuropathic pain, which is caused by damage to the nervous system and can be associated with conditions such as diabetes or multiple sclerosis.
Fibromyalgia, which is a chronic condition that causes widespread pain, fatigue, and other symptoms.
Complex regional pain syndrome, which is a chronic condition that causes severe pain and changes in skin colour and temperature.
Postoperative pain, which is pain that occurs after surgery and can be managed with pain medications or other techniques.
Anaesthesia and pain management specialists use a range of techniques to manage pain and discomfort, including medications, nerve blocks, epidural injections, and other procedures. They work closely with other healthcare providers to develop individualised treatment plans that address the specific needs of each patient. The goal is to provide safe and effective pain relief and improve the overall quality of life for patients.

Treatment for urologic conditions will depend on the specific condition and the severity of the symptoms. Some common treatments recommended by SRV Hospital include:
Medications: These can include antibiotics for urinary tract infections, pain relievers for kidney stones, and hormone therapy for prostate cancer.
Surgery: This can include procedures such as cystectomy (removal of the bladder), nephrectomy (removal of a kidney), prostatectomy (removal of the prostate), and vasectomy (surgical procedure to prevent pregnancy by cutting or blocking the vas deferens).
Radiation therapy: This can include radiation therapy to shrink tumors and stop its growth.
Non-surgical procedures: These can include lifestyle changes, dietary modifications, physical therapy, and medications to manage symptoms.
Before undergoing surgery, the anesthesiologists will talk to you about managing pain after the procedure. While some level of pain is expected following most surgeries, there are various methods available for managing it, such as taking oral medication, receiving injections for pain control, or using an IV pump. Our team at SRV Hospitals will also provide you with instructions on how to manage pain at home after your surgery.
The anesthesiologists at SRV Hospital in Mumbai are trained to provide various methods of pain management during surgeries or medical procedures. We specialise in both general anaesthesia, where the patient is unconscious during the procedure, and regional anaesthesia, where certain parts of the body are numbed to prevent pain. General anaesthesia has become safer and more efficient, resulting in faster recovery. Additionally, many procedures that previously required general anaesthesia can now be done using regional pain management techniques, which can aid in a quicker recovery.
