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:

  • Confusion
  • High fever
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Unbearable pain that makes you lethargic

We have treated thousands of patients with persistent pain after:

  • Thoracotomy
  • Inguinal Hernia Repair
  • Abdominal Surgery
  • Hysterectomy
  • 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.

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
  • Injections
  • Spinal Cord Stimulation
  • DRG Stimulation
  • Pain Pump Therapy
  • Structured Physical Therapy

I've been coming here for 4 months now after trying to manage my back pain issues with every other treatment and medicine that my previous specialists offered from May 2022 until Nov 2023. In these 4 months I've had more improvement in mobility and pain relief than i did in all of 2022 and 2023. I've also seen a significant weight loss from being able to move better, cook my own food, and work again. Pain Zero also offer medicine when needed between procedures and more importantly they listen to the issues you're having and provide safe and effective pain relief. I wish I would have came here 2 years ago when my issues first started, but I'm thankful to have found a great doctor and pain management center now. Why I would suggest Pain Zero over a place that rhymes with Northo Oro for spine and neck issues through my personal experience. (Dr. C and his orthopedic team at "Northo Oro" are awesome!) I feel Dr Taif at Pain Zero listened to my issues and concerns with the pain and offered options he felt was best for me. I was very hesitant after many short lived & underwhelming procedures at the other places. Pain Zero offers all the same out patient surgical procedures as the bigger ortho centers. The difference in that is the big centers have around 30 people on staff and PZ has about 5. So the costs of the procedures are far less and you don't have an audience in the room either like the other place.
