Exparel: Opioid-Free Pain Control
At Lehigh Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we strive to offer our patients cutting edge technology and options for minimally invasive surgery. This includes minimizing post-surgical pain.
In light of the ongoing opioid epidemic, we are excited to offer EXPAREL (Bupivicaine Liposome in a DepoFoam carrier) to our patients who would like a NON-OPIOID solution for pain control post-surgery. Approved by the FDA in 2018, EXPAREL is a long lasting NON-NARCOTIC pain control solution. Clinical trials have shown statistically significant reduction of pain from Oral Surgery procedures up to 3 days after the surgery.
EXPAREL is a safe, non-addicting pain control modality. It is injected at the surgical site after surgery and stays at the site of action for 3 days providing excellent pain relief.
EXPAREL is typically not covered by Medical and Dental insurance. We are happy to discuss the benefits and cost of this innovative pain control modality in person at the time of consultation.
