Post-surgical Pain Relief. Right ON-Q.
If you’re like most people facing surgery, you’re probably concerned about the pain afterwards. In fact, many people put off having an operation because they’re worried about a long and uncomfortable recovery. Now, there’s a better option to get you back on your feet faster after surgery.

ON-Q is a post-surgical pain pump that delivers local anesthetic (pain numbing medicine) right to a targeted area. Using ON-Q can help reduce your need for narcotics which can have undesirable side-effects and slow your recovery. With ON-Q, patients ambulate faster, breathe more deeply, and return to normal daily life quicker. And since ON-Q is non-narcotic, you feel better faster.

How does the ON-Q PainBuster Work?
The ON-Q PainBuster is a portable pain relief delivery system that uses a small, balloon-line pump and catheter (a small tube). During your surgery, your surgeon will put the catheter in the place at or near the surgical site.
In the days immediately following your surgery, a small amount of local non-narcotic anesthetic (pain numbing medication) in continuously and automatically delivered though the catheter. This non-narcotic medication goes directly to where it’s needed most-helping you feel better fasting, without the unwanted side-effects of narcotics
Once the pump is empty of medication, the catheter can be easily removed and the pump thrown away.
