Spinal Anaesthetic

Spinal Anaesthetic at Ashtead Hospital

A spinal anaesthetic is an alternative to a general anaesthetic for operations below your waist. The anaesthetic is injected directly into the fluid sac around your spinal cord and provides immediate pain relief.

Ramsay Health Care works together with leading consultant anaesthetists who are members of The Royal College of Anaesthetists.

Your anaesthetist will help you to decide on the best pain relief for you whilst taking into consideration your preferences and healthcare needs. They are focused on giving you the best quality patient care.

Your local Ramsay Health Care hospital is committed to ensuring excellent safety at all times. All Ramsay hospitals adhere to strict infection control protocols to minimise the risk of infection, including Covid-19.
