Surgery at White Plains Hospital Managing Surgical Pain

Following surgery, we want to ensure our patients are able to rest and heal. This includes managing pain that may be associated with surgery. Pain management after surgery can help you:

  • Experience greater comfort while you heal.
  • Get out of bed sooner, start walking, and perform breathing exercises more effectively.
  • Avoid complications such as pneumonia and blood clots.

As a patient, you should expect:

  • Your reports of pain to be believed.
  • Information about pain and pain relief measures.
  • Health professionals who will respond quickly to your reports of pain.
  • To participate in decisions regarding pain control and options.
  • Effective management of your pain.
