“I get asked all the time, “hey doc, how did the Opioid crisis get so bad? How did my child get addicted to drugs after a surgery? How did my child or loved one die of a Heroin overdose? How is it possible that four out of five new Heroin users started on prescription Opioids?”
Honestly, I wish I saw it coming. I didn’t and neither did any of my colleagues. It snuck up on us. We were told Opioids were not addictive. That is clearly not the truth.
I have been on a personal mission since 2013 to change the culture of postoperative pain management for doctors and patients. I have been spreading my message and passion for Opioid Sparing surgery around the world. There is good news – Doctors across the country are embracing our postoperative Opioid Sparing techniques. I have also been proud to participate in the Choices Matter campaign. This non-branded campaign was designed to empower patients on the choices available in postoperative pain management.
My passion for Opioid Sparing Surgery is the reason I founded OrthoLazer. OrthoLazer is a non-operative non Opioid alternative treatment for acute and chronic orthopedic pain.” – Scott Sigman.
