The article focuses on multimodal pain management after joint arthroplasty surgical procedure. It mentions that, suitable and adequate pain management after surgeries or operations is linked with lesser rate of hospital admission and reduced cost of assistance. Multimodal pain management requires the use of multiple agents that pass in the pain pathway of the body and it provide relief for the patients with less dependence on opioids.
