A good surgeon will plan to reduce recovery pain long before the surgery is performed
Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/22/2016 -- Thankfully we have anaesthesia to cope with pain during surgery, but there are several techniques that can be used to reduce pain after surgery, during the healing & recovery period. Any good surgeon should plan in advance to minimize their patient's pain not only during the surgery, but before and certainly after the surgery.
The techniques to minimize pain from surgery are discussed on this week's (22Feb16) episode of Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today on webtalkradio.net. Leading, dual certified, plastic and craniofacial surgeon Dr Cory Goldberg, from Toronto talks with fellow Canadian & show host, Edmonton cosmetic dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka.
In this in-depth interview, Dr Lycka & Dr Goldberg begin with a discussion about how pain is triggered, and how it affects the levels of post-surgical recovery discomfort. Dr Goldberg highlights the benefits of using topical and injectable local anaesthetic during surgery, and the alternatives to using opioids. Both doctors are strong supporters of Glisodin natural supplements, and they share their experience of patients who commence taking the 'Advanced Pre & Post Formula' 2-4 weeks before their surgery. They see a noticeable reduction in the amount of post-operative swelling and inflammation, and typically see around 50% reduction in the amount of pain medication patients need to take after their surgery.
