The article highlights the result of the 2006 Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation Pain Management Initiative survey with respect to pain management in orthopedic surgery. It showed that narcotics remain the most reliable and effective means for managing postoperative pain. The survey indicates that the future of perioperative pain management in orthopedic surgery seems to lie with expanded use of preemptive analgesia and multimodal therapies.
