16. Post-operative Narcotic Management

June 23, 2017 10:12 pm Published by

Our office will be able to prescribe pain medication (ie. Percocet, Oxycodone, OxyContin, Tramadol, Nucynta, Dilaudid) for up to 3 months after your surgery.

During this time period, patients are encouraged to wean off the narcotic medication and manage pain with anti-inflammatories (ie. Celebrex, Mabie, Naprosyn, AI eve, Advit Motrin) or Tylenol.

If narcotic use exceeds the 3 month post-operative period, patients will be referred to a Pain Management specialist for further care.
