Surgery before the advent of anaesthesia was painful and associated with increased morbidity and mortality.

William Thomas Green Morton in 1846, demonstrated the effects of ether, and introduced anaesthesia to the world.

Over the past 170 years the science of anaesthesiology has progressed at a rapid pace. Surgical outcomes and post-operative analgesia has relieved the patient and has provided pain relief.The anaesthesiologist has gone beyond the confines of the operation theatre. The department is now referred to as the Department of Anaesthesiology, Critical care and Pain care management.
