The “Opioid Crisis” persists in the United States, with opioid-related deaths being the most common cause of death of young adults. Moreover, over 130 Americans die daily from opioid-related causes. The management of acute pain is a common challenge for Orthopaedic Surgeons; including, post-operative and post-injury. Thoughtful pain management is needed to both effectively manage our patients’ pain while not exacerbating the Opioid Crisis. The expert faculty will provide specialty specific findings that can be readily employed by practicing Orthopaedic Surgeons.
