What is Pain Management?

During any spine surgery, anesthesia is administered to ensure the patient does not feel pain or discomfort. After the surgery, effective pain management becomes necessary, especially for patients undergoing outpatient spine procedures. Pain control techniques include minimizing the size of the surgical exposure and infusing deeper muscles with anesthetics. Additionally, pain management often involves a combination of medications, such as narcotics, muscle relaxers, and antiinflammatory drugs. The use of ice and cold therapy can further help reduce postoperative pain and swelling. 

In this procedure, the intervertebral disc is replaced with a metal or bone spacer, and the vertebrae are fused using titanium rods and screws. This spacer helps maintain the intervertebral height and promotes bone healing, while the rods and screws  contribute to the stability of the spine.

What is the process / patient journey for Pain Management at IBS Hospital?

Your pain medication will be prescribed based on the severity and type of pain you are experiencing. Most patients can return home on the same day

What is the post-surgery follow-up and recovery timeline?

Follow-up is necessary if the pain persists or if you are still on heavy medication. During the follow-up appointments, your medication may be adjusted to lighter options or discontinued, depending on your condition.
