Anesthesia helps eliminate the sensation of pain and discomfort from the patientâ€™s body thus enabling doctors to perform painful surgical and therapeutic procedures with added ease. Anesthesia is usually given through an injection given to the part of the body that is to be operated. There are different types of anesthesia which ultimately determine if a patient will be semi-unconscious or fully-unconscious during the course of the procedure.Â
