Long acting bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension

Explore a Novel Option for Postoperative Pain Control

John Barrington, MD, demonstrates the use of a novel long-acting bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension (EXPAREL®; Pacira, Parsippany, New Jersey) to manage the discomfort his patients experience following major joint replacement surgery.  

The videos feature Dr. Barrington explaining how he infiltrates the wound site with EXPAREL during knee and hip replacement procedures. He prefers EXPAREL as part of his multimodal pain management strategy because it controls pain for up to 72 hours postoperatively.
