At St.Vincent Women's Hospital, our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible after your surgery. Pain after surgery is to be expected, but with current treatments it can be controlled.
Pain management can help you:
- Enjoy greater comfort while you heal
- Get well faster
- Improve your results - people whose pain is well-controlled seem to recover better
- Avoid some post-operative complications
We offer several pain management options including both drug and non-drug treatments that can be successful in helping prevent and/or control pain. Many people combine two or more methods to get greater relief. Our Integrative Therapy techniques support the effectiveness of pain medication. Discuss pain control options with your doctors and nurses. Our patient centered approach to healthcare gives you, along with your doctors and nurses, the opportunity to design the best pain management plan for you.
