Learn more about our products:


The ON-Q* Pain Relief System is a non-narcotic elastomeric pump that automatically and continuously delivers a regulated flow of local anesthetic to a patient’s surgical site or in close proximity to nerves, providing targeted pain relief for up to five days.

With the ON-Q* Pain Relief System, patients:

  • Went home an average of 1.1 days sooner
  • Reported up to 69% lower pain scores
  • Were up to 3x as likely to report high satisfaction scores
  • Are more likely to experience better pain management with fewer side effects


In light of the opioid epidemic, Dr. Jon Y. Zhou discusses Erector Spinae Plane Blocks for postoperative analgesia.

Dr. Schmutzler discusses ESP blocks and how he incorporated this novel block into his practice.


The ambIT* Electronic Pain Control System is a small and light weight pump that flows local anesthetic medication to relieve your pain after surgery. It continuously or intermittently delivers medication that blocks pain in the area of your procedure.


  • More comfortable recovery after surgery
  • Better pain relief without the side effects of narcotics
  • Quicker return to normal
  • Earlier release from the hospital
