Post Operation and Pain Relief

The management of your pain is of great importance to us and will be taken very seriously.

  • The management of your pain should be discussed with both your anesthesiologist and surgeon.
  • Please feel free to bring up any concerns you may have.
  • Remember that information on pain management gives you the appropriate expectations for a more smoother recovery.
  • We will be assessing your level of pain from the time of admission until you receive our postoperative call at home.
  • You will be repeatedly asked to rate your pain¬†using the Visual Analog Pain Scale, or for children, the Faces Pain Scale.
  • Using the results of our communication we will alter the therapy as needed in order to assure your comfort.

We will often use a combination of different modalities to help make you comfortable. Please discuss different options with your Anesthesiologist.
