Regional anesthesia / nerve block anesthesia numbs individual areas of the body in a targeted manner and makes them impervious to pain.
To this end, thin needles are used to inject small quantities of numbing agent into the direct vicinity of the nerves to be treated. The functioning of the nerve is interrupted until the drug has worn off.
The patient is fully conscious during the subsequent treatment/operation.
Anxious, excitable or algesic patients can additionally receive analgo-sedation from our anesthesiologists in order to place them in a pleasant state of sedation.
