What is a Peripheral Nerve Block?

Peripheral nerve blocks are a type of regional anesthesia. The anesthetic is injected near a specific nerve or bundle of nerves to block sensations of pain from a specific area of the body. There are several advantages to peripheral nerve blocks, including reduced risk of post-operative fatigue and vomiting as well as improved post-operative pain management. Patients often require less pain medication during recovery when a peripheral nerve block was used in surgery. Because a peripheral nerve block only affects the area of the body being operated on, patients have an option to be awake or asleep during the procedure.

Am I a candidate for a Peripheral Nerve Block?

Your provider may recommend this treatment if you are experiencing persistent post-surgery pain or have Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). Nerve blocks usually last longer than local anesthesia. They are most commonly used for surgery on the arms and hands, the legs and feet, or the face.
