Foot Surgery: Surgical Settings

Your doctor can tell you where your surgery will be done. You will also be told the type of anesthesia you'll be given during surgery to stay pain-free. A local anesthetic may be used to numb the area of your foot. Or, you may be given a local anesthetic with sedatives to keep you relaxed but awake during surgery. In some cases, general anesthesia may be used to let you sleep through the surgery.

Office

Many outpatient (same-day) surgeries can be done in your doctor's office. You can return home the same day. You may be given a local anesthetic.

Same-Day Surgery Facility

This surgery center handles more involved outpatient procedures. You will stay there for a few hours, and return home later that day. You may be given a local anesthetic and sedatives, or general anesthesia alone.

Hospital

Some surgeries may need to be done in a hospital. Your stay there can be for one or more days. You may receive a local anesthetic along with sedatives. Or you may be given general anesthesia alone.
