Anaesthesia and freedom from pain

GENTLE, SAFE OPERATIONS

In order to make operative surgery as minimal and gentle as possible, our highly specialised operating staff use minimal invasive operating techniques whenever possible. Smaller cuts not only mean smaller scars – the preservation of muscles and tendons also reduces complications. A shorter stay in the clinic overall and faster rehabilitation contribute to the restoration of quality of life. 

During the operation, a highly qualified team of anaesthetists uses the latest anaesthetic devices and procedures to ensure that the operation is safe and pain-free. A further important component of our treatment concept is the avoidance whenever possible of post-operative pain. We achieve this by already actively involving the patient in the creation of an individual, suitable pain therapy concept before the operation.

DETAILED RISK ANALYSIS

In the event of larger and more complex interventions in particular, we conduct a detailed risk analysis for the individual patient. This is based on the case history and on a clinical examination.

The examination is usually conducted by the patient’s GP before the operation. With associated illnesses that increase the perioperative risk, it may be necessary, however, to supplement the diagnosis made by the GP. For this purpose, we offer a comprehensive internal medical diagnosis.

CLOSE MONITORING AFTER THE OPERATION

After the operation, patients are professionally cared for and supported by our nursing team in the recovery area and on the ward. For more intensive medical monitoring, intermediate care beds are available if necessary.

After the patient is moved to the normal ward, central monitoring of the vital functions is guaranteed. In this way, minimal deviations can be detected in good time. Even in cases of post-operative complications, a diagnosis and treatment is possible here on site.

MODERN PAIN THERAPY

As well as medication treatments, we also use ultrasound-controlled regional anaesthesia for pain reduction purposes, in order to temporarily numb individual nerves. Our anaesthesia team has excellent expertise in the use of this procedure during orthopaedic/trauma surgery operations.

In complex pain therapy situations, other medication and alternative treatments such as neural therapy, acupuncture or TENS stimulation are also used. Here, special pain therapists and physiotherapists cooperate closely. Through the clear reduction in post-operative pain, we achieve faster mobilisation, rapid recovery and, as a result, a higher level of patient satisfaction.
