An anesthetic drug is applied to the part of the body that is to undergo surgery.
It may be used with sedation, which calms the patient and reduces stress levels. Together, they enable the surgeon to carry out the procedure without pain or distress.
Local anesthesia only lasts a short time, so it is mainly used for minor outpatient procedures, where the patient can leave on the same day.
