No, and for several important reasons. Any kind of anesthetic has disadvantages that far outweigh any perceived advantage of numbing the area. First, only a licensed medical practitioner can legally administer injectable anesthetics. Anesthetics cause swelling, which result in shallow or crooked piercings.

Many families today tell me their doctor has recommended using a numbing cream (topical anesthetic) before the bris. As a mohel who has successfully been performing circumcisions for over 30 years without such methods, I am concerned that doctors are making this recommendation. Current and readily available information on using topical anesthetics yields the following warnings: Topical creams are to be used only on normal, unbroken skin. They are not to be applied to damaged skin or open wounds.

While anesthetics may be injected, we feel the associated risks do not justify their use. There is a possibility that the method of injection needed to numb the facial area may result in injury to the patient. And naturally, the continuing process of ongoing electrology sessions only heightens the potential risk to the individual.

A. Most clinical problems have been traced to preservative agents. But, how could a nerve poison really be safe? Some of the breakdown products of common local anesthetics become aniline dyes during detoxification. Aniline dyes are carcinogenic. What we are worried about here is risk/reward ratio. The degree of dose versus strong or weak detoxification pathways. Sometimes there is nothing better than that wooden numbness. Most dental procedures really do not require local anesthetic.

We cannot guarantee that it won't, but newer, better anesthetics are associated with less post-operative nausea and vomiting. We also use extensive prophylaxis with 2 or even 3 different "anti-emetic" drugs, which counter-act and treat nausea. Using these, we can do much better than in the past, but if you still get sick we can try a couple of other ones that usually succeed.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of the different anesthetics used in the cropping surgery?Boxer Mailing List - Cropping &Docking Boxers
There are almost as many different anesthetic regimens as there are veterinarians who crop ears. All have advantages and disadvantages and while one regimen is safe in one person's hands, it may not be safe in another's hands. The best anesthesia is usually what the individual veterinarian is most accustomed to using and most comfortable with. My personal preference in young puppies is Ketamine and Valium for induction of anesthesia.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
Ask the dentist what type of local anesthetics they are using, then avoid that type of anesthetics. Be sure it is the local anesthetic and not the epinephrine found in most local anesthetics or the latex gloves worn by most dentists that can also produce a skin allergic reaction. You may also want to have your physician or dentist do test to determine what types of local anesthetics you are or are not allergic to.

Physical therapists as well as the orthopaedic staff prefer you use a walker. A walker has four legs and is more stable than crutches. Thus, a higher level of stability will equate to a higher level of protection to you and your new joint. If you have used crutches in the past and can use them well, you may be allowed to use them. If so, physical therapy will determine your stability with the crutches prior to discharge.
