Local doctor does N.J.'s 1st, 2nd opioid-sparing surgery

On Wednesday, he performed the nation's 2nd and 3rd (1st and 2nd in New Jersey) opioid-sparing shoulder operations with Exparel.

    Local doctor does N.J.'s 1st, 2nd opioid-sparing surgery
    Just 6 days ago, the Food & Drug Administration approved a new use for Exparel, a pain-blocker, enabling it to be used closer to the nerve in shoulder surgery, reducing the need for opioids. Dr. Sean McMillan, chief of orthopedic surgery at Lourdes Health Network, wasted no time in putting it to use.
