Anesthesiology & Pain Management

Beijing United Family Hospital’s Department of Anesthesiology is made up of highly experienced professionals and provides comprehensive care for all patients requiring regional or general anesthesia for therapeutic, diagnostic, or surgical procedures. All our anesthesiologists are selected from reputable hospitals in Beijing with at least 15 years of anesthesia experience. We offer a full range of anesthesiology services, including for general surgery, urological surgery, pediatric surgery, obstetric surgery, orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, cardiovascular surgery, thoracic surgery, plastic surgery, and all oral and maxillofacial surgery. We are also able to carry out dental sedation and endoscopies, as well as provide CT and MRI anesthesia. Our services are available to a whole range of people, from premature babies to our elderly patients. Our epidural services meet the highest level of international standards. In additional, the pain management team is able to provide comprehensive and multifaceted pain management care after surgery. Our ultimate goal is to alleviate any negative feelings that patients might associate with the medical procedures they undergo.

Pain management is a branch of anesthesiology that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of various aches and pains. We believe that pain is unique to each individual and pain management is about more than just prescription medications and surgery; it‘s about minimally invasive treatment options that allow you to get your life back. The Beijing United Family Hospital Pain Management Clinic is dedicated to helping those who suffer needlessly from pain. We aim to improve quality of life and to avoid oral pain medication and the associated risks. We make sure to consider patients’ input when planning the course of treatment, and strive to provide excellent post-treatment follow-up care. We insist on basing our services on a thorough understanding of each patient’s unique situation, and we ensure that our treatments are non-addictive.
