Or, if you really want them opening, you might try going into Casualty at St Thomas'
on a Friday or Saturday evening.

In her early days in the NHS as a medical secretary, MOH found one of those things in her desk drawer, she thought at the time "funny looking doorknob" :lol:

OK - so who would want the knee / hip replaced under local anaesthetic only?

Hip and knee operations 'should be done under local anesthetic to help cut carbon emissions'

see: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/0 ... tudy-says/

Switching 1 million hip and knee operations to local anaesthetic would save the equivalent of 7.3 million miles driven in a car

For me - it would be general or nothing I think - especially having listened to my last boss describing his hip replacements.

I had carpel tunnel seen to on left arm under local. That was fun.

I could not warm to the idea of it being used for anything much more complex.

It all seems to be a bit of a trade-off between different types of discomfort.
