Prof Dr Urs Eichenberger and his team use the latest anesthetic techniques for patients of all ages, including children, to provide optimal conditions for smooth and pain-free surgery, as well as recovery from the operation with no complications and minimal pain. Once patients have left the operating theatre, the team continues their care in the recovery room, on the intensive care unit, on the ward, and in subsequent anesthetic and pain clinics.
