Doctors in Belgium are offering hypnosis to patients as an alternative to general anesthesia before conducting minor operations and say that such a step could improve the recovery rate and reduce dependence on pain killers.

Doctors at Cliniques Universitaires St. Luc in Brussels have been offering hypnosis since 2003 while another hospital in Belgium has conducted over 8,000 such surgeries.

Doctors in France, Germany and UK too have been conducting surgeries by offering hypnosis rather than general anesthesia.

In fact the demand is so high in France that the French Society of Anesthesiologists has created a separate hypnosis branch in their organization.
