World’s first deep brain surgery using hypnosis instead of anaesthetic
During this six hour operation the patient was required to be under hypnosis for the entire time.
Normally, such medical interventions are done with anaesthesia but the use of hypnosis helped to test the results during the procedure.
Hypnosis Reduces Pain & Speeds up Recovery
Since 1992, we have used hypnosis routinely in more than 1400 patients undergoing surgery. We found that hypnosis used with patients as an adjunct to conscious sedation and local anaesthesia was associated with improved intraoperative patient comfort, and with reduced anxiety, pain, intraoperative requirements for anxiolytic and analgesic drugs, optimal surgical conditions and a faster recovery of the patient.
