Prof. Esther Pogatzki-Zahn MD, PhD, presents the background and evidence behind postsurgical pain. She discusses the incidence of chronic postoperative pain, relating to acute pain management in the perioperative field. Risk factors are identified that relate to the risk of developing acute and chronic pain. She concludes that individualizing pain management during and after surgery can help reduce the risk of postoperative pain.
