Multimodal pain management, limiting prescriptions can reduce opiate use after TKR

ORLANDO — Reducing opioid use is an ongoing concern despite that oral opiates remain an important component of pain management for some patients who undergo total knee replacement, a presenter said at the Current Concepts in Joint Replacement Winter Meeting.
The goal of reducing opioid use by half is realistic, Matthew J. Kraay, MD, said.
Orthopedic surgeons must be aware of and change situations in which overprescribing of opiates occurs, he said, because overprescribing can encourage overuse by patients, as well as diversion of opiates for non-medical use by patients and others.
