  • New On-Q Pain Pump Provides Better Pain Control

    Continuous peripheral nerve catheters provide excellent postoperative pain relief. The On-Q continuous peripheral nerve catheter is a soft, threadlike catheter that provides a continuous infusion of local anesthesia for pain relief up to three to four days after surgery or trauma. The catheter provides several benefits, including:

    • It allows you to participate in therapy with less pain.
    • You can recover from your surgery or procedure with less discomfort.
    • It provides better pain control than oral pain medication.

    This is a brief overview and instructions for using the On-Q pain pump, watch this video.
