Exparel offers postoperative patients up to 72 hours of pain relief.
Dr. Lindsey is now offering Exparel to patients undergoing surgical procedures. To date, the longest lasting injectable anesthetic was bupivacaine. This medication would last up to six to eight hours, but thereafter pain control would be managed with narcotics, anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxants.
Exparel offers sustained pain relief that facilitates a much easier postoperative recovery without the undesirable side effects of oral medications that could include nausea, vomiting and constipation. Exparel is a modification of the traditional bupivacaine such that metabolism of the anesthetic medication is slower, and the effects are much longer lasting. Dr. Lindsey encourages patients undergoing procedures such as abdominoplasty and breast augmentation to inquire about this new medication.
