Pain is a constant concern for every patient, and that fear can sometimes cause patients to forego necessary treatment for fear of the suffering they’ll have to endure. For this, doctors have created many ways to mitigate pain, and these methods have evolved from simple solutions to medical-grade products. In recent years, however, the medical community has become aware of the negative effects of such a dependence upon narcotic-based pain management systems. So, for patients in McLean, VA, Virginia Oral, Facial & Implant Surgery is proud to introduce the Exparel Pain Management system that can produce amazing results without the use of narcotics.


Bringing The Most Pleasant Experience Possible

The Exparel Pain Management System not only eases the pain but also reduces the need for strong narcotic drugs thanks to a multimodal pain management system. This system eliminates the possibility of narcotic dependence and can bypass any possibility of narcotic resistance or accidental overdosage of the drugs.

Dr. Gocke has been treating patients in McLean with Exparel for quite a while now, and the results are amazing. Not only do patients report less pain after surgery, but they live healthier and recover faster because their body is healing instead of using resources fighting off the effects of the pain medication.

Exparel can be used for many different types of surgery, including:

Exparel® is revolutionizing the way doctors implement multimodal pain management systems. Virginia Oral, Facial & Implant Surgery is one of the first practices to use Exparel® within a post-surgical pain management system in McLean, VA. Dr. Gocke has put together this eBook to explain the facts of this system and how it will benefit you in the long run.

For a quick introduction to Exparel, the process begins when the doctor places Exparel into the surgical area during the procedure. Exparel has specially formulated bupivacaine, a type of local anesthetic, that is designed to release into the body over a long period of time for lasting pain management and relief. In this way, Exparel numbs only the pain in the area of the body where the surgery was performed, and it doesn’t have long-term and wide-reaching bodily effects because it doesn’t interact with the rest of the body.
