When we experience pain, it begins as an acute process. It might be an ankle sprain, arm fracture, or due to surgery. In fact, chronic postsurgical pain affects up to 50% of adults. Guidelines suggest using multimodal analgesia to manage acute pain. Seglentis, a unique oral medication is available that combines tramadol, a weak opioid and celecoxib, an anti-inflammatory.

Our guest is Dr. Oscar de Leon-Casasola. He’s a pain specialist, senior Vice-Chair, and Professor of Anesthesiology and Medicine at the University of Buffalo School of Medicine. We’ll talk to him about state-of-the-art methods of treating acute pain, multimodal analgesia, and how to best use this medication called Seglentis™ for reducing pain.
