Opioids

For over 20 years, we have been dedicated to providing innovative non-opioid pain relief solutions that allow patients to get back to the things that matter.

Acute Pain Solutions

  • Significantly reduce opioids after surgery
  • Provide better pain relief than opioids alone

Chronic Pain Solutions

  • Minimally invasive treatment options
  • Clinically proven to provide long term pain relief for up to 2 years

Opioid prescriptions are often given to patients as a first-line treatment for both acute and chronic pain, although long-term effectiveness has not been proven.
