Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Paul Sethi was featured in an article in the Sunday, December 3 editions of Heart Media newspapers including the Greenwich Time and Stamford Advocate. Dr. Sethi was highlighted for his efforts to combat the opioid epidemic by greatly reducing, and in some cases, eliminating severe post-surgical pain. Dr. Sethi and other surgeons at ONS have been using a new local analgesic called Exparel®, which injected directly to the surgical site during the procedure. Further, the analgesic allows the area to remain numb for as long as four days. It is the period of most intense post-surgical pain. As a result, physicians are prescribing far fewer opioids to patients.
