In brief: Foot surgery

Generelly foot surgery can be seen as a local procedure or general anesthesia procedure.
Local procedures have the area numbed about the area and the procedure is done. General anesthesia given in the hospital, is needed for procedures that require it. The area is scrubbed, a tourniquet may or mat not be used to stop bleeding during the surgery. The incision is closed and a dressing is applied.
