General Anaesthesia in Northwood
Dr Bhat has private operating rights at Bishops Wood Hospital, private wing of Mount Vernon Hospital in Northwood. This is part of the BMI group of Hospitals.
General Anaesthesia for implant and implant related surgeries like bone grafting, is sometimes necessary for an anxious patient or if the procedure is relatively challenging. General Anaesthesia today, is an extremely safe procedure and the post anaesthetic recovery is fast and comfortable. This procedure also allows us to work on more than one site at the same time which sometimes is not possible under local anaesthesia alone.
The anaesthesia is provided by a Consultant Anaesthetist under strict monitoring guidelines. Most of these procedures are done as a day surgery and the patient is usually comfortable enough to go home the same day. Further recall appointments would then be arranged at the Moor Park Specialist Dental Centre.
The cost of the General Anaesthesia, the bed and medications for the day would be charged directly by Bishops Wood Hospital to the patient either prior to their appointment or at the end of their visit. Some procedures are covered by private medical insurance, although this would need to be clarified by the patient prior to commencing treatment.
