The influence of Nanotechnology on postoperative opioid consumption in ALIF procedures

Orthopedic spine interventions are associated with a higher risk of opioid dependence and overdose. It is pertinent that surgeons stay vigilant in opioid stewardship, explore ways to improve the patient's postoperative experience and lessen the use of opioids.

This study reveals how advancements in nano-surface technology on spinal interbody devices influenced a reduction in the postoperative opioid usage when comparing the same implant design with and without Nanotechnology.
