ON-Q* VS NARCOTICS

Narcotics: An old way of thinking about pain relief
Traditionally, the way of relieving pain after surgery has been with narcotics such as a morphine injection or pain pills. These drugs affect your entire body instead of targeting the actual site of your surgery, and may cause unpleasant side effects. Narcotics may actually prevent you from getting back to normal faster.
“The consensus statement of the Society of Pain Management recommends some type of regional block as well as a multimodal medication approach during recovery.”
