Is anesthesia provided during a bunionplasty? I am 50 years old male in Richmond Hills in NY


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.
