SIP 2017 - Key Statement

Prof. Dr. Per Kjaersgaard Andersen – South Danish University, European Federation of National Associations of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (EFORT), Denmark

"Most surgeries performed within the speciality of Orthopaedic Surgery – are performed due to pain. Therefore, naturally the patients expect to be either pain free or have reduced pain after surgery. As this cannot always be obtained, we as surgeons MUST both learn about types of pain, pain treatment programmes – and also to communicate to patients that pain will not always totally disappear with surgery."
