Pain Management Before and After Surgery
Dr Hsu runs a comprehensive clinic which ensure patients are cared for in their surgical journey. Most patients prior to surgery are seen by Dr Hsu in a preoperative consult. Here a detail examination is performed to titrate your individual surgical needs. This is to ensure your surgical procedure occurs without any problem.
In addition in this clinic a detailed consultation occurs around optimising your preoperative pain so that each patient can have a specifically designed pain management plan.
Dr Hsu employs state the art nerve blocks ( regional anaesthesia) where a freezing/ numbing local anaesthetic is injected near the nerves of your joints so that once you wake up after the surgery you have no to minimal pain. In addition minimal morphine is given during the surgery so patients wake up with minimal nausea and vomiting
Dr Hsu prides herself in looking after patients on a daily basis. Dr Hsu will come and visit you regularly after your surgery to ensure you have minimal discomfort and pain. This ensures a quicker discharge home and quicker recovery.
