The benefits of a commercial virtual transitional pain service for a veteran: A case study in the perioperative arthroplasty setting


Description

Transitional pain services (TPS) can be effective in addressing chronic postsurgical pain and opioid tapering; however, it has not been used widely or within a solely virtual setting. Using a commercial virtual transitional pain (vTPS) service which identifies patients for chronic pain and opioid dependency risk prior to surgery, we present a case study on a veteran undergoing TJA. Our findings show that providing comprehensive pain management care, including pre- and post-surgery psychological support for a veteran who is at medium-to-high relative risk for chronic pain and opioid dependency after TJA is effective through a virtual TPS program.
