Local anesthesia

With local anesthesia, only the surgical area is numb. Local anesthesia may be given by injection or spray, or as an ointment. You will be awake or moderately sedated. Local anesthesia is often used for outpatient procedures such as foot or hand surgery. Dentist and doctor’s offices usually use this method.

You will go home that same day. You may continue to feel numbness in the surgical area afterwards.
