KUMC-Cardiac Anesthesia

Major works done by this department (major diseases)

  • The roles of doctors in the department of anesthesiology and pain medicine are largely divided into three: anesthesia during surgery, intensive care, and pain treatment. To perform surgery, anesthesia is an indispensable medical practice. Anesthesia by area such as cranial nerve anesthesia, heart anesthesia, obstetric anesthesia, pediatric anesthesia, and geriatric anesthesia and anesthesia in special areas such as organ transplant are becoming the foundation of the development of modern surgical medicine. In addition, the contribution of doctors in the department of anesthesiology to breathing control in intensive care units and clinical care medicine is remarkably increasing patients’ survival rates.
  • Hyperhidrosis/chronic pain/monitoring devices and monitoring in operating rooms/postoperative pain control/pain treatment room

Information on major tests and procedures

  • Epidural endoscopy - Epidural endoscopy is the newest minimally invasive low back pain treatment method for chronic low back pain patients who do not respond to existing conservative low back pain treatment methods.
