Caption: Femoral nerve block. Surgeon injecting anaesthetic into patient's groin during a femoral nerve block prior to upper leg surgery. The anaesthetic will block the three nerves located in the groin, which serve the hip, front of the thigh and knee. A nerve block is often combined with a general anaesthetic. This allows the strength and amount of anaesthetic to be reduced, therefore reducing any risks associated with the drugs. It also provides longer-lasting pain-relief after the surgery than just a general anaesthetic alone.
