Surgery can be performed on the lower extremity using spinal anesthesia. This involves placing a catheter into the spinal area and infusing a numbing medicine to make the leg go to sleep, while you remain awake.

Some surgeons may agree to do the procedure with "local anesthesia" which means you stay awake...some may not, so you will have to inquire with your surgeon and get a second opinion if he says no.
