Regional anaesthetic

The most common anaesthetic procedures

Not every operation requires a full anaesthetic. Especially in the case of orthopaedic operations, people benefit from local anaesthetic procedures: this shortens the recovery period and protects the immune system of the patient.

In addition, physiotherapists or ergotherapists can begin with post-operative mobilisation earlier – for the patient this means: he or she can return home more quickly and resume normal everyday life.

 Regional anaesthetic eliminates sensitivity to pain in certain areas of the body without reducing consciousness. In addition, if required the patient receives a sedative which puts him or her in a semi-conscious state during the operation.

 

The main regional anaesthetic procedures:
Spinal anaesthesia and epidural anaesthesia

We employ spinal anaesthesia and epidural anaesthesia for operations on the lower extremities. Here, the anaesthetic is injected into the spinal canal in the area of the lumbar spine.

Brachial plexus anaesthesia

We employ brachial plexus anaesthesia for operations on the hand, the arm and on the shoulder. Depending on the area of operation, the anaesthetist injects the anaesthetic into the plexus of the armpit, below or above the clavicle or in the area of the front neck muscles or of the nape of the neck.

Lumbal plexus anaesthesia

The leg is supplied by two large nerves, the nervus femoralis and the nervus ischiadicus. Both nerves can be individually located and blocked.
