Axon Anaesthesia Associates was one of the pioneers in developing the concept of an anaesthesia
group practice in India. At the present time, Axon Anaesthesia Associates remains the largest and
most successful such programme in the country. It combines the flexibility of private practice with
the organisation of a fully-fledged department. A bank of skilled anaesthetists is available 24/7,
or just a phone call away. Moreover, one does not work alone; there is a redundancy of personnel to
help in case of emergency. Since Axon works at multiple sites, individual anaesthesiologists have
job security and stability. This is a group which has been created and run by anaesthetists, who
themselves have worked abroad and in India. Obviously, they fully understand the concerns and
requirements of an anaesthetist; making Axon Anaesthesia Associates an attractive career
