The Department of Anaesthesia at St Vincent’s Private Hospital Sydney is the oldest of any Australian private hospital. 

Our anaesthetists offer expert anaesthesia for every type of surgery and procedure undertaken at St Vincent’s Private. This includes but is not limited to anaesthesia for:

  • cardiac surgery
  • neurosurgery
  • plastic surgery
  • orthopaedic surgery
  • urological surgery
  • day surgery
  • ear nose and throat surgery
  • general surgery
  • gynaecological surgery
  • eye surgery
  • interventional radiology
  • electrophysiology
  • endoscopy

We provide a venous access service and perform procedures for the management of acute and chronic pain. We offer consultation facilities for patients prior to anaesthesia and for the management of chronic pain.

Our department’s specialists all possess a Fellowship from the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists and many have spent additional years training overseas. Many of our staff are current and former office bearers of the Australian Society of Anaesthetists and the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists.

Our department has a long history of excellence in anaesthesia and provides regular continuing education and quality assurance sessions for its members. The department is involved in the training of anaesthesia registrars in cardiac anaesthesia and also in the anaesthesia training of intensive care registrars.

Our facilities are located in Suite 808 of St Vincent’s Clinic, where there are consulting rooms, secretarial services and a library lounge for the 40+ members of the department.
