The national opiate crisis had led to new initiatives in reducing pain and narcotic consumption after spinal surgery. This challenging realm requires a different approach to patient care. In this Breakfast Seminar attendees will hear varying perspectives from surgeons who have successfully reduced pain through various methods, including modifications of surgical technique, regional analgesia, prehab, use of non-narcotic pharmaceuticals and patient counseling.
