1. Total Hip Replacement

Post-operative pain is associated with increased hospital length of stay, delayed ambulation, and long-term functional impairment. Whereas appropriate caution is warranted in administering opioid analgesics to older adults, it has been demonstrated that improved pain control may decrease length of stay, enhance functional recovery, and improve long-term functional outcomes. Thus, the need for non-opioid pain control is apparent.
