The anesthesiologist ensures that the surgical procedure is safe and painless for the patient. Anesthesiologists select the type of anesthesia for the operation, determine the required dosage, administer the anesthesia, and constantly monitors the condition of the patient. Every surgical team includes an anesthesiologist, whose task is to instantly respond to any change in the patient's condition during the operation.
Any patient who is preparing for surgery or another medical procedure requiring general or regional anesthesia will consult with an anesthesiologist. While local anesthesia can be administered by the doctor who is treating the patient, general or epidural (spinal) anesthesia must be administered by an anesthesiologist.
Anaesthesiologists and intensive care physicians deal with borderline, life-threatening conditions. They possess the advanced medical skills necessary to guide patients into medicated unconsciousness, with complete deactivation of the senses. They are also fully trained to provide medical care in emergency cases involving cardiac arrest, anaphylactic shock, acute respiratory failure, and so forth.
Intensive care physicians assist in the treatment of patients with complex injuries, severe burns, frostbite, or infectious lesions, i.e. those with the most serious and life-threatening injuries and conditions, in the emergency room and intensive care unit.
Patients awaiting surgery will usually meet with the anesthesiologist before the procedure. No special preparation is required. The doctor will carefully study the patient’s medical history to find out whether the patient has any chronic diseases or allergies. He or she will look at the results of any tests and exams performed, and if necessary may prescribe additional studies to determine whether a particular type of anesthesia can be used and in what dosage.
GMS Hospital provides a full range of medical services in the field of surgical treatment. The anesthesiologist selects the most appropriate anesthetic and determines the correct dosage, taking into account the patient's general condition, examination results, chronic diseases (if any) and other factors. This thorough analysis is necessary to avoid any complications from the anesthesia.
Our anesthesiologists and intensive care physicians also perform the following treatment procedures:
All procedures and interventions are carried out in strict accordance with international protocols. GMS Hospital is equipped with the most advanced, high-precision equipment. During their entire stay at our clinic, patients are surrounded by experienced, attentive specialists who provide the full range of medical care required at each stage of treatment.

Many thanks to Dr. Oleg Sergeevich Abramov, who performed a surgery and helped me cure a severe case of odontogenic sinusitis.
Dr. Abramov is extremely competent and polite, a true professional with a rare set of skills. I have already recommended him to a colleague of mine and will recommend again.

Greetings from South Africa,
This is a follow up to our recent stay at GMS where my wife Merle Step had a complete Hip replacement by you recently.
She stood up to the return trip to South Africa very well and is able move around with the aid of a walker without difficulty. I took her to our local General Practitioner on Friday, with all your reports and X-Ray plates. He commented that he was very happy with the excellent procedures that you carried out and felt that she was in excellent professional hands while at GMS. He has referred her to an orthopedic surgeon for a final checkup and stitch removal. Also she is to go to Physo for further manipulation.
From both of us we cannot express our gratitude enough for the professional service, helpful administrative as well as nursing staff that attended to our needs while at GMS. We will always look back and always remember the Russian people for their friendly assistance to two complete strangers from another part of the world. In turn Russia will always be in our hearts and we will be good Ambassadors for your great country and federation.
Please pass on our greetings and thanks to a few that I remember by names, if I have left anyone out I apologies.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you every success in your chosen profession and GMS does get global worldwide recognition as an intuition of repute.
Best of luck
Anthony and Merle Step
I am writing to you, on behalf of my wife Helen and myself, to thank all the staff of GMS clinic for the help and support you gave us during our stay in Moscow.
Since, I am ashamed that admit that I speak no Russian, I hope that you will be willing to translate this for the members of the GMS staff who do not speak English.
My own doctor seems pleased with the progress I am making. I still have a dressing on one of the wounds where the stitches may have been removed prematurely before I left the clinic but the others are fine and healing well.
Being ill and requiring surgery in another country will always be something of an ordeal, but the calm reassuring atmosphere in the GMS clinic did much to make us feel better about the experience. The administrative staff at reception was kind as well as efficient and their efforts on our behalf are something that we will never forget. We would also like to thank the cooks for the excellent food they prepared. We regret that we did not get the opportunity to meet them but we greatly appreciated their efforts and, after almost a week without normal food, I particularly enjoyed being able to choose from their extensive menu. Please forgive me for not always doing justice to the meals served but it has taken some time for my appetite to return to normal. We would also like to thank the room attendants for serving our meals so well and keeping our room so clean and tidy. Just as important for us, when so far from home, was that they always did so with a gracious smile. We looked forward to their visits and would like to thank them for being so remarkably patient when we tried to talk to them. We would also like to thank the several kind nurses who cared for me so diligently. I do not believe that I could not have enjoyed more attentive nursing anywhere else in the world and will never forget you. The several doctors who attended me at various stages also need to be thanked. I am grateful to them all but hope that they will forgive me for singling out Dr Constantin Dimitri for a particular mention. His patience, as he explained to me so well in English both what was happening to my body following the operation, and what he and the rest of the medical team were doing - and why – was particularly appreciated and helpful to me during my recovery.
Many, many thanks to you all.
I want to thank you all so much for making my stay in hospital so bearable. You are all so professional and dedicated and it was a pleasure to spend time with you all even under those unusual circumstances.
I am now home and being cared for by my family as well as my own doctor so all is as well. Hopefully I will be up and about soon.
Once again, many thanks and suffice to say, I will never forget you and your staff did for me.
Best wishes always.
Our specialists will contact you
