Hypnosurgery may be a name used for an operation where the patient is sedated using hypnotherapy instead of traditional anaesthetics. it's claimed that hypnosis for anaesthesia
has been used since the 1840s where it had been pioneered by the surgeon James Braid. There are occasional media
reports of surgery
being conducted under hypnosis,but since these aren't administered under controlled conditions, nothing are often concluded from them. there's insufficient evidence to support the efficacy of hypnosis in managing pain in other contexts, like childbirth or post-operative pain. At this time, preparing a patient for hypnosurgery would come with having several 50–60 minutes’ sessions of hypnotherapy done by a hypnotherapist. Each individual session focuses on controlling the pain and relaxing the mind. the amount of hypnotherapy sessions varies consistent with the patient and their susceptibility to hypnosis. Generally, the patient would be ready for hypnosurgery after 6 weeks of coaching . Hypnosis can also be helpful post-surgery in helping to facilitate faster healing in patients,[non-primary source needed] with one study reporting faster tissue healing in patients who use hypnosis during surgical recovery.[unreliable medical source?] Several other studies have shown a psychological link with healing and recovery.[non-primary source needed] during a study of patients up to seven weeks after undergoing a surgery
, researchers found greater healing and improvement in patients who had used hypnosis over those that only received supportive attention or standard "standard postoperative care"
