Opioid Management for Joint Replacement Surgery

We provide evidence-based pain management, resulting in improved patient satisfaction and shorter lengths of stay. Our expert anesthesiologists use innovative techniques to minimize pain after surgery, decreasing your opioid use/overuse risk. And we offer a variety of pain relief treatment options, including nerve block and non-opioid medications, to keep you comfortable during your recovery.

Joint Replacement Recovery

Because every patient’s recovery is different, we create a recovery and exercise plan tailored to your specific condition and needs. Nearly 99% of our patients are able to recover at home following total joint replacement.

If you stick to your plan and follow your doctor’s instructions, you’ll experience less pain, improved mobility and return to your daily activities sooner.
