What and Who is an Anaesthesiologist?
An anaesthesiologist is a medical consultant who works hand in hand with a surgical consultant during a surgical procedure. An anaesthesiologist will see a patient before their operation to discuss their general health, the most appropriate anaesthetic for the type of surgery they are about to have and the potential anaesthetic and surgical risk.
They are also involved in control of post-operative pain or nausea.
A patient may meet their Anaesthesiologist in CCP’s offices in advance of their admission for surgery to discuss their anaesthetic . Should you wish to meet Dr Ng prior to your procedure at the Beacon Hospital, please click this link to arrange a meeting.
