The best way to control your pain after surgery is to start managing it before surgery.
Your comfort is important to us! ChristianaCare’s comprehensive pain management program is designed to help you manage your pain with less need for opioids or narcotics.
Before we take you to the operating room, we will give you a combination of non-opioid pain medicines, such as acetaminophen, celecoxib, gabapentin, ibuprofen and/or ketorolac to take with a sip of water.
Your care team will partner with you to decide what medicines are best for you.
