Dr. Nolan Horner Featured In Press: “Opioid-sparing protocol may reduce opioid consumption after shoulder, knee arthroscopy”

Dr. Nolan Horner, a physician at Genesis Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, was recently featured in well-known publication Healio.

The piece was about his research on an opioid-sparing protocol that may reduce opioid consumption after shoulder and knee arthroscopy.

The article writes:

Results showed implementation of an opioid-sparing pain management protocol may reduce opioid consumption compared with a standard opioid prescription protocol in patients undergoing outpatient shoulder and knee arthroscopy.

“This study strongly suggests that patients may not require opioid pain management, not just for simple debridements or meniscectomies, but even for potentially more complex procedures, like ACL reconstructions and rotator cuff repairs,” Nolan S. Horner, MD, an orthopedic surgeon in Chicago, said in his presentation at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Annual Meeting.
