Preventing Pain after Surgery

Last updated 2 years ago

Pain management after surgery is absolutely crucial to your recovery. If you are in too much pain, you will have difficulty performing any type of activity, even those as simple as walking to the restroom. However, systemic pain medications, particularly those in the narcotic family, can be habit-forming and come with a number of side effects.

Addressing the pain at the source using a slow but steady trickle of local anesthetic via a pain pump has proven to be incredibly effective at controlling post-surgical pain without the need for strong narcotic drugs. Check out this video to learn more about how this method of pain management works.
