Just what makes EXPAREL different?

  • EXPAREL is targeted, working directly at the surgical site, unlike opioids, which are systemic and affect the entire body
  • EXPAREL requires only one dose, administered by a doctor during surgery, so you and your family have one less thing to manage afterwards
  • EXPAREL provides pain control for the first few days after surgery, when patients need it most
  • EXPAREL is proven in clinical trials to reduce the need for opioids in both adults and children*
    • EXPAREL patients went longer before needing opioids than those who didn’t receive EXPAREL
    • EXPAREL patients required fewer opioids than those who didn’t receive EXPAREL

*The clinical benefit of the decrease in opioid consumption was not demonstrated in the pivotal trials.
