Our own Dr. Graham Lee addresses concerns about anesthesia and opioid safety on Live 5 News. Dr. Lee highlights the extensive training in anesthesia that each oral surgeon at Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery completes, adding that surgical techs are also trained in anesthesia.
Because opioid abuse and addiction have become increasingly common, Dr. Lee details the measures that COAFS takes to combat this issue. These include the use of a long-lasting, non-opioid solution for pain management called Exparel and utilizing a state-wide database called SCRIPTS that prevents the over-prescription of narcotics.
