Personalized Pain Relief

A highly skilled team of doctors and clinicians at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center provides individualized pain relief as you recover from surgery and other serious medical treatments. This includes a plan to transition home comfortably.

Pain management is provided for patients who undergo elective procedures such as joint replacement, mastectomies and other surgeries, and for patients who have suffered an accident or traumatic injury. This type of care, sometimes called acute pain management, typically lasts for a defined recovery time and is different from chronic pain management.

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery

Lakewood Ranch Medical Center has initiated the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) program, which is a multidisciplinary perioperative care pathway designed to achieve early recovery for patients undergoing major surgery and improve surgical outcomes. Benefits of ERAS may include shorter length of stay, decreased postoperative pain and need for pain relief, more rapid return of bowel function, decreased complication and readmission rates and increased patient satisfaction.
