Southern Cross Hospital Hamilton - Anaesthesia

Private Surgical Service

This is where you will come to have your surgery performed. The visits to your surgeon before and after surgery will be at their consulting rooms.

Regional Anaesthesia

An anaesthetic is  injected near the nerve pathways to the site of your surgery, so that area becomes numb.  You will be awake but will not feel pain from the surgery.  You may also receive a medication to make you feel relaxed and sleepy.
