More Than 10,000 Opioid-Free Outpatient Surgeries

May 5, 2021

Seattle Children’s is proud to report we have surpassed a milestone of more than 10,000 opioid-free outpatient surgeries at our Bellevue Clinic and Surgery Center.

Seattle Children’s is a national leader in efforts to reduce the use of opioids during outpatient pediatric surgeries, while maintaining or improving pain management and outcomes for patients.

Last spring we shared an interview about this innovative approach with Dr. Lynn Martin, an anesthesiologist and medical director of the ambulatory surgery center at Seattle Children’s.
