Optimizing Pain Control in Prostate Transurethral Resection
“Optimizing Pain Control in Transurethral Resection of the Prostate”
The purpose of this study is to develop a multi-modal protocol for pain management after TURP that minimizes opioid use. The investigators hypothesize this approach will provide non-inferior pain control to the current standard of care which includes opioids as the primary agent. The investigators believe this is an important step in reducing the opioid epidemic in surgical patients.
