The chances for surgical patients to get back on the feet through latest concoction of medicine

It was kept on hold by Mary Kay Drummond for the pain to arise after her knee replacement surgery on Jan 21. An year ago, she had her right knee replaced and when the time to leave arrived, she braced herself for the uneasiness and serenity she went through first time. She was waiting for the pain which never occurred to her. Many hip and knee replacement patients like Mary Drummond happened at St. Clair Hospital in Mt. Lebanon, Pa., and are coming up from the surgery with less pain and gaining the normal position on their feet after the surgery. The credit goes to the new cocktail medicine, which was directed at the time of surgery. Actually, the combination has the anesthetic Exparel which is mainly for the patients going through hip and knee replacements at St. Clair. Dr. Brett Perricelli, an Orthopedic Surgeon at St. Clair said that, “We know these are traditionally very painful surgeries”. Everything now has changed when compared to the one which I read previously about knee and hip replacement.
