Recovering After Surgery

We are strong proponents of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocols and techniques.

  • After surgery, post-operative soreness and pain at the site of surgery is expected and can vary from person to person and depending on the surgery.

  • All efforts will be made to ensure pain is controlled with multi-modal analgesia, which is using all different types of medications in combination to address the different aspects of pain including muscle spasm, nerve pain, inflammation.

  • While opioid medications are known to be useful for pain after surgery, they are associated with many side effects including nausea, vomiting, constipation, urinary retention, ileus, orthostatic hypotension, delirium, and oversedation. We make every effort to control post-operative soreness and pain with all alternative medications and methods to avoid these dangerous side effects.
