"Local anaesthesia blocks the sensation of pain in the skin. By applying that, patients really don't feel anything that we're doing. The nature of these procedures is such that they can be conducted safely and comfortably without putting someone asleep or using a more significant level of general anaesthesia."
The CompuMed system is a safer alternative to general anaesthesia for surgeons conducting specialized operations. Patients treated with local anaesthesia can resume daily activities after a procedure without the side effects associated with general anaesthesia.
