Regional Anesthesia in Foot and Ankle Surgery
Anesthesia is an important part of the surgical experience. The anesthesia and reanimation specialist is in charge of a significant part of the patient’s stay in the hospital, including the patient’s compliance with the procedure, follow-up during the operation, and pain management after the operation.
Regional anesthesia methods are effective and sufficient in most of the foot and ankle surgery cases. In regional anesthesia, the sense of pain in a specific area of the body is temporarily blocked by special techniques. Regional anesthesia techniques include spinal anesthesia, epidural anesthesia, or nerve blocks.
Preference of regional anesthesia is to manage the pain that may be felt after the operation more effectively.
