Department- Cardiovascular and Thoracic Anaesthesia

Background History

Cardiac anesthesia has evolved from its primitive stage to achieve its highly advanced current state and has been recently recognized as a super-specialty anesthesia branch in India despite its existence since last few decades. It is not only restricted to  open  heart  surgeries  but  it  caters  to  all patients  with  diseased  cardiovascular  system  who  needs  special  care  with  advanced monitoring in  the  perioperative period.

Cardiac anesthesia came to its existence when Dr P.K.Sen in 1958 established department of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery (CVTS) at this institute. Dr Meena  Bhatt  and  Dr  AJ Dhruva  successfully administered  anesthesia  during the first heart transplant in Asia in1968. Since then Dr LathaChaudhry, Dr LalitaTuteja, Dr L Dewoolkar, Dr SarlaPandya, Dr MadhuGarasia, Dr Deepa Kane, Dr. Manjula Sarkar have rendered their services towards cardiac anesthesia.

However, during all these years of development, increasing need was felt to develop cardiac anaesthesiology as a super specialty branch with the trained, technically sound, skillful and knowledgeable cardiac anesthesiologists. So, initially one year fellowship was started in 2010 which was soon followed by DM course in 2013. It is the first recognized superspecialty anesthesia course in MUHS and Maharashtra.
