Dr. Timothy Young Talks About Anesthesia and Bunion Surgery

The vast majority of bunion surgery is done with the combination of local anesthetic and IV sedation. IV sedation is also sometimes referred to as twilight sleep. Very similar to when you have a colonoscopy.

We have the Anesthesia team come to our certified surgical suite and start the IV, make you comfortable and then you are asleep. While you are asleep we administer the local anesthetic. You don’t feel the Injection because you are sleeping and when you wake up after the procedure, your foot is numb and you have no pain. The local anesthetic can last for 24 hours or longer. This is excellent for the initial post procedure pain control.
