The department is actively involved in the administration of anesthesia to patients undergoing challenging surgeries involving the brain and spinal cord such as complex intracranial tumor craniotomies, open neurovascular craniotomies, complex neurovascular bypass procedures, sitting craniotomies, stereotactic procedures, image guided neurosurgery, and epilepsy surgeries as well as the entire range of spinal surgeries. In addition, the department provides anesthesia to patients receiving endovascular treatment for conditions such as aneurysms (ruptured and non-ruptured), arteriovenous malformations, carotid stenosis, CNS tumor and fistula embolizations, and vertebroplasties in the cathlab.

The operation theatre complex at Citi Neuro Centre is equipped with state-of-the-art anaesthesia work stations and sophisticated monitors with the sole purpose of providing absolutely safe and effective anaesthesia for patients belonging to all age groups. Other latest technology such as gadgets for managing difficult airway, vital parameter monitors, ventilators, and fiberoptic endoscopes are available to manage all types of patients during surgery.

The department also offers 24x7 critical care to patients with potentially life-threatening neurological conditions requiring life support system, post operative neurosurgical patients and other intensive medical interventions. Various neurologically ill patients requiring ventilation are managed by invasive and non invasive state of the art ventilators. Percutaneous tracheostomy is performed in patients requiring long term ventilation. Multidisciplinary care for patients with dysfunction or failure of one or more organ systems, like cardiac, pulmonary, neurology, liver and kidney, amongst others are provided with promptness and compassion.
