Electronarcosis: Electronarcosis does induce sleep, but does not produce anesthesia. In laymen term, it would not be adequate for you to have surgery. It may have some benefit to produce some degree of analgesia. It was developed to treat psychiatric disorders.

I think it can, but : Would not be able to tell you much details without doing research on it. I graduated almost 30 years ago and this kind of things have been studied before that, as far as i remember. It is not in active use right now.
