Orthopaedic surgery. Surgeon operating on a patient's broken wrist. She is carrying out this operation following an injection of local anaesthetic to effect a nerve block. The injection was carried out on the patient's left brachial plexus, a bundle of nerves that leads to the left arm. This has numbed the arm, allowing surgery to be carried out on her wrist.
