About us


The Department of Anaesthesiology is one of the largest clinical departments in SDMCMSH with qualified and well trained Anaesthesiologists, Postgraduate students and trained Anaesthesia Technicians. Apart from the operation theatres, anaesthesia services are provided in all parts of the hospital round the clock. There are state-of-the-art operation theatres, surgical intensive care units and advanced anaesthesia work stations which are comparable with the best health care facilities in India and abroad. Teaching and training is provided to Postgraduate students in Anaesthesiology and B.Sc in Anaesthesia Technology course. The department has a library with a collection of latest textbooks on anaesthesiology, intensive care, pain management, procedures, clinical pharmacology etc.

Head of the Department

Department of anaesthesiology is currently headed by Dr. Shrirang V. Torgal who has a vast knowledge of the subject and an experience of 25 years in Anaesthesiology. He is a trained Anaesthesiologist with work experience in various Institutes. He is managing the resources at his disposal to the best possible outcome in the ever increasing work load.

The best teacher in life can completely change life in a good way. A teacher is the best guide for everyone, he/she teaches us dedicatedly to make our future bright and successful.

More about our Department

  • Postoperative pain relief with Patient – controlled Analgesia method is in regular use.
  • 2 Ultrasound machines are in regular use for nerve blocks and invasive procedures,diagnostic purp.
  • Anaesthesiologists also regularly perform tracheostomies, central line insertions and CT and MRI procedures under sedation.

MBBS students are exposed to the subject of anaesthesiology as per CBME curriculum. Weekly lectures covering various relevant aspects anaesthesiology including the history and scope of anaesthesia are conducted. They also get exposed to various anaesthetic procedures in the operation theatre during their OT postings. Postgraduates are being trained in pre-anaesthetic evaluation, all sub-specialities of anaesthesiology, intensive care, pain and palliative care. They have a structured program of practical training on rotational basis in all sub-specialities of anaesthesia to make them confident of handling variety of patients. They are also presenting seminars, journal clubs and clinical cases as per the SDMU guidelines. They are evaluated periodically for their proficiency in theory as well as practical work. Postgraduates are also trained to conduct a scientific clinical research by the way of dissertations. They are allowed to conduct elective as well as emergency cases under the direct supervision of concerned faculty. Students of various Allied Health Sciences courses like B.Sc. in Anaesthesia Technology ( B.Sc. AT), B.Sc. in Operation Technology(B.Sc. OT) are trained here with a thorough exposure to the practical aspects. They are taught about the principles of asepsis, sterilization of instruments, arranging OT equipment and assisting in anaesthesia and surgical procedures.
