Avoid the opioid
How the Opioid Epidemic has impacted Orthopedic Surgeons10+ years ago, pain scores were promoted as the main concern of HCPs, and opioids were presented as nonaddictive. In turn, opioid prescriptions proliferated and resulted in the opioid epidemic we’re experiencing today.

With this epidemic, many orthopedic surgeons are looking for a more natural and less addictive method of controlling post-op pain. With new improvements, multi-modal pain management has become a very effective solution.
How Orthopedic Surgeons are turning to Multi-Modal Pain ManagementWhile no panacea exists yet, more effective multi-modal treatments, such as Cold-Compression Therapy (CCT) and In-Office Pharmacy (IOP) can help stem the reliance on opioids.
With multi-modal approaches, Orthopedic Surgeons can take more control of end-to-end patient treatment plans, while maximizing practice efficiency (and revenue.)
WR Specialists has been serving Orthopedic Surgeons with Multi-Modal pain management solutions for over a decade. WRS consults with practices to identify and provide solutions that both improve patient recovery and increase revenue.
Getting initial medications straight from my Doctor vs struggling with my local pharmacy was so much easier. With additional cold-compression therapy, I needed fewer pain meds overall and got back on my feet, faster.

How improvements to In-Office Pharmacy can help Orthopedic SurgeonsEarly IOP solutions were better known for price-gouging and over-prescribing.
But the fundamentals were solid, as IOP is focused on patient care and convenience, with doctor control and oversight, while alleviating the bureaucracy.
WRS has worked with Orthopedic Surgeons to reinvent In-Office Pharmacy solutions that help practices looking to take control of Multi-Modal patient treatment.
The WRS IOP program has improved convenience and care for our patients while increasing revenue for our practice.

How Cold-Compression Therapy can help Orthopedic SurgeonsCold-Compression Therapy (CCT) is an essential element in Multi-Modal pain treatment, limiting medications, and eliminating opioids.
CCT addresses the fundamentals of RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) to reduce swelling and pain.
WRS has worked with Orthopedic Surgeons to design and develop what’s become the industry-leading VascuTherm CCT unit.
