Performing a circumcision produces significant discomfort if done without the use of an anesthetic. Anesthetic medications taken by mouth, injected or inhaled will alleviate pain. Circumcisions for older children can be performed under local or general anesthesia.
Local Anesthesia ( Nerve Block)
Local anesthesia involves the injection of anesthetic medications on or around a nerve to control pain in a specific area of the body. They are sometimes used in combination with a sedative medication for pain management during circumcision. They work by temporarily blocking the pain pathways that connect the spinal cord to the brain. Consequently, pain sensation is not recognized. Nerve blocks are safe and effective options for those who do not desire general (sleep) anesthesia.
