Chronic post-surgical pain (CPSP) is increasingly recognized as a serious chronic pain entity that is challenging to manage. CPSP often severely affects quality of life, contributes to chronic opioid use and increasing health care costs. This session will examine the epidemiology and pathophysiology of CPSP. We will also address risk factors associated, evidence-based preventative strategies and multimodal approaches that may help prevent or mitigate CPSP.
