Peripheral nerve block anesthesia consists of injecting anesthetics through a needle near the nerves involved in the area to be operated on. This type of anesthesia numbs the part of the body around the catheter so that a surgical procedure can be performed without pain. This technique also serves as an analgesic (painkiller) in the operated area and lasts for several hours after the operation.
