Why no general anesthesia

It is not necessary. The patient is sedated and comfortable during the spine procedure. This permits the surgeon to know when he has relieved the problem because you can tell him when it happens! One less bit of guesswork! Local anesthetic is injected where the small cut is to be made. Intravenous medications keep the patient comfortable but alert.
