Abstract : Patients express high anxiety before undergoing any surgery due to fear of anesthesia and its implications. Considering this, the study aims to provide insights about patients’ fears related to anesthesia. It also identifies the causes that instill anesthesia-fear. A cross-sectional design was used where data was collected from 3285 individuals through a survey questionnaire. The findings indicate that the majority of the individuals were afraid of both surgery and anesthesia (43.1%). Top causes of fears were related to medical errors (56.7%), the untrained anesthesiologist (53.2%) and fear related to death (38%). It concludes that medical errors serve as a primary fear-inducing factor for anesthesia in surgical treatments
