I agree, good anesthetic IS hard to come by, though autoclaves aren't.
Sterilizing with vodka is dumb, it still has remnant sugars. Rubbing
alchohol is cheaper, too.
I like what she's doing  on principle but I'd hate if this becomes a fad in
transhumanism.

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a
hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build
a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate,
act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a
computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.
Specialization is for insects.
