Is anesthesia provided during a bunionplasty procedure? I am 50 years of age, male and live in Richmond Hills in New York.


Bunion surgery requires some form of anesthesia, even in NYC.  In order for the bunion surgery to be performed the foot needs to be put to sleep, or numbed with an injection.  This injection is called a local or regional block.  Sometimes a general anesthesia is performed for bunion surgery.
