Your Anesthesia Options

Before the surgery, the patient is given anesthesia to numb the hand and wrist. The anesthesia option used depends on the type of surgery and the patient's medical history. Most procedures are performed with general anesthesia, but local anesthesia might be offered in certain instances.

If this is the case, your surgeon will thoroughly discuss your options with you in advance of your procedure. There are two types of anesthesia options available for orthopaedic surgery in Glasgow:

  • Local anesthesia: This is a type of anesthesia that is injected into the hand and wrist to numb the area. The patient is awake during the procedure and can communicate with the surgeon.
  • General anesthesia: This is a type of anesthesia that puts the patient to sleep during the procedure. The patient is not aware of the surgery and does not feel any pain.
