Coming next month in JACS and online now: Patient satisfaction and pain control using an opioid-sparing postoperative pathway

Alexander Hallway; Joceline Vu, MD; Jay Lee, MD; and colleagues report in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons (JACS) their findings that patients reported minimal or no opioid use after implementation of an opioid-sparing pathway while still reporting high satisfaction and pain control. These results demonstrate the effectiveness and acceptability of major reduction and even elimination of opioids following discharge after minor surgery.
