Hypnosis trance has been used as a form of analgesia to carry out surgery on patients. It was used frequently before the discovery of anesthetics and it is also used today for operations in hospitals around the world in on certain cases.
Dr. Gabor trains physicians, psychologists as well as hypnotherapists in the use of hypnosis for sugery and hipno-sedation. Read more…
Dr. James Esdaile (1808-1859), a Scottish surgeon, used hypnosis for several thousand minor and approximately 300 major surgeries in India for hypo-anesthesia, including for amputations. Pain free surgery dramatically reduced the death rates. Then ether and chloroform started to be used for anesthesia. (Dr. Francis Brodie Imlach (1819-1891) became the first person to use chloroform on a patient in a clinical context, during the course of a dental procedure in Edinburgh.)
In the 19th century a tumor weighting more than 100 pounds was removed from a hypnotized patient, without feeling any pain.
In 1994, Andy Bryant, from Great Britain, used hypnosis for pain control for his vasectomy operation without anesthesia. He did not feel any pain during his surgery.
Studies show that sometimes people can appear totally unconscious during anesthesia yet upon awakening they can remember statements said during the actual surgery. Specific suggestions and healing statements can be offered by the hypnotherapist during surgery based upon the specific needs of the surgery. Muscles are more relaxed, bleeding is lessened and the body experiences less traumas. Based on these scientific studies, patients require less anesthetic, wake up sooner after the surgery and heal faster.

“Liege hospital in Belgium is pioneering surgical hypnosis. Since 1992 the anesthetist professor Marie Elizabeth Faymonville, MD has used hypnotic techniques in over 5000 operations. Hypno-sedation, the use of hypnosis in combination with tiny amounts of anesthetic, leads to a 70% reduction in the amount of the drug used.
There are huge benefits of hypno-sedation in surgery.
– avoid the patient being placed in a medically induced coma
-the anesthetic risks are diminished significantly
-patient breathes by himself and takes care of the cardiovascular parameters by himself
-permits the patient to maintain conscious awarness and be comfortable during surgery
-requires trivial amounts of medicine
-after surgery patients get back to their full energy level much more quickly than after general anesthetic”
