About Persistent Post-Surgical Pain
Surgery may heal major health issues, but sometimes pain after surgery needs to be managed carefully with the right treatment customized for your specific pain and intensity. Pain after surgery may occur due to:
- Incision wounds
- Burns from a grafting procedure
- Organ damage
- Nerve damage
- Tissue damage
At Pain Zero, our pain care specialists will prescribe a personalized pain management plan after gathering more information about the type of pain you're experiencing and the location of the pain. We also will ask about the severity of the pain, the duration of pain, and whether it prohibits you from performing daily functions. Our team recommends you seek medical attention immediately if pain symptoms are severe enough to cause:
- High fever
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pain
- Unbearable pain that makes you lethargic
We have treated thousands of patients with persistent pain after:
- Inguinal Hernia Repair
- Abdominal Surgery
- Gyn Surgery
- Total Hip Replacement
- Total Knee Replacement
- Foot and Ankle Surgery
What Increases Your Risk of Post-Surgical Pain?
Certain factors can increase your risk of post-surgical pain, including age, medical history, the complexity of your surgery, and how well you take care of yourself during recovery. At Pain Zero, our experienced team members work hard to reduce your risk of pain and discomfort. We accomplish this by monitoring your progress closely and addressing any issues that may arise before they become a larger problem. Patients who follow their personalized treatment plan and take the necessary precautions during recovery can reduce their risk of post-surgical pain.
Treatment for Persistent Post-Surgical Pain
After surgery, some patients may experience lingering pain during the healing process. At Pain Zero, we want to understand the type of pain you're having and at what intensity. Once we gather your medical, surgical, and pharmaceutical history and perform a physical examination, we may also order some specific tests, including blood tests, X-rays, CT scans, or sonograms, to check for any post-surgery complications.
Our pain care specialists will develop a comprehensive plan that best fits your post-surgical needs as you heal. We may recommend any of the following:
- Pain Management Medication
- Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory medication
- Nerve blocks
- Spinal Cord Stimulation
- DRG Stimulation
- Pain Pump Therapy
- Structured Physical Therapy

Post-Surgical Pain Reviews
This is my first visit it went pretty good I felt relaxed with them and it seemed like he truly really wanted to help me to get my pain in order and I'm looking forward to my next visit till I see I can see where we go next on handling my pain shook my hand very polite very good doctor
My experience at Pain Zero has been nothing short of awesome. Last week I went to pain zero after I had my PCP send over a referral for EDS. When I got to my appointment ( sick with a POTS fit that day) the office told me that my provider called in and canceled my appointment without an explanation. Feeling defeated I just went to my car and cried, after trying to get in touch with my PCP I got a call from Pain Zero saying they will see me regardless of the error my PCP made. It wasn’t even their error to fix but they helped me anyway. Then today I go in and meet Dr.Harris who ends up being one of the best doctors I’ve ever received care from. He listened to me, took his time and he’s hilarious. He definitely made me feel comfortable and heard, I am certainly looking forward to my care under him.
Pain Zero has been nothing short of amazing! Starting at the front desk (receptionist), my nurse and Dr Harris, they are all wonderful!! I was really nervous for my first appointment, due to a not so great experience with a different business. However, from the very beginning they made me feel valued, cared for and like a person not just a number. Dr Harris takes time at each appointment to address my needs and answer any questions I have without making me feel embarrassed or rushed. Personally, I would recommend Pain Zero to anyone that is dealing with chronic pain. Thanks to this group, I no longer fear my appointment or have an anxiety attack beforehand. 😀
Best pain Dr ever staff super great.
He actually listened to me. He was very helpful and got to the problems. He told me that I should get a podiatrist so I'm going tohe. He's awesome 😎he told me about a shot 💉 I could get to help with my pain. We're getting an implant put in to help with the pain in My feet and lower back.
