Pain Management at Parker Adventist Hospital

A very important part of the recovery process involves the control of the surgical pain. The care path at Parker Adventist Hospital uses a multi-focus approach to manage pain while remaining safe for the patient. Options include:

  • A variety of pain pills taken on schedule and as needed
  • Supplement medications that increase the effectiveness of the pain pills
  • The use of medicines to numb the surgical site
  • Activity, balanced with elevation and rest of the surgical site
  • Ice to the surgical site
  • Holistic options - music, massage, family support

"I have less pain in my hip after the surgery than I did before. It is much less sore than I expected it to be." WK 7/6/2011
