As a tertiary referral centre for major hand trauma surgery, St George’s Healthcare is able to provide patients with the choice of having their procedure carried out under regional anaesthetic techniques. We have a number of consultants who specialise in regional anaesthesia.

Dr AasifaTredray and Dr Andrzej Krol have worked together since 2006 to also run a highly successful two day course on regional anaesthesia. The course is held twice a year and consists of lectures, workshops and small group in theatre teaching covering all aspects of regional anaesthesia.

We also collaborate with our colleagues at East Surrey hospital as part of the faculty for their highly successful regional anaesthesia conference held in November every year.

To complement the courses we have prepared a background to regional anaesthesia, equipment used and the basic science around it and a user friendly guide to performing some common blocks.
