Managing Your Pain During Recovery
Pain relief after surgery is an important part of the recovery process. We use the ON-Q* system with many of our orthopaedic patients. This small pump continuously delivers local anesthetic medicine to the area of your procedure, blocking the pain. With ON-Q*, you may have better pain relief than with narcotics alone and need to take less pain medicine. Talk with your doctor to find out if ON-Q* is right for you.

Not Quite Ready to Go Home?
Sometimes when you’re recovering from a major surgery, like total joint replacement, you may benefit from short-term skilled nursing and rehab before going home.
Our swing bed program might be the right choice for you. We call it a swing bed because your care “swings” from traditional hospital care to skilled nursing care – without your ever leaving the hospital. Until you’re ready to go home, you’ll heal and regain your strength with the support of our team of hospital experts and Total Rehab professionals. Call 419-783-6955 ext. 5226 to learn more.
