Dr. Parimala strongly believes that anaesthesiologist is a perioperative physician. The care begins in the preoperative period, continues during the intraoperative period and ends with postoperative care. Physical and intellectual presence of anesthetist throughout the surgery is essential to take care of the expected and unexpected events. She takes pride in being completely responsible for the patient whether they are awake or asleep and make sure patient is stable, comfortable and pain-free during the postoperative period. In her words “I am proud to say We care when you are not aware
and believe patient safety is the first priority”.
