Responsive Pain Control
We believe pain control is essential to providing you with the best possible treatment before and after your procedure. Since pain can have many levels and intensities, we use an adjustable approach to pain management. This gives us, the doctors, and you, the patient, the most effective and safest use of pain medications.
The chart above is divided into two categories—one shows the recommendations for patients who can take aspirin-like drugs and the other shows the recommendations for patients who can’t take aspirin-like drugs. It also indicates the pain level—from mild (yellow) to severe (red)—that could be reported by the patient and the possible remedies for each level.
If you’re a patient in pain and do not understand this chart, then call our office immediately for assistance: (708) 456-7787
