Acupuncture in the Operating Room? Yes it’s true!!

Do you have adverse reactions to anesthesia? Acupuncture might be your solution! Here is an interesting example of acupuncture being used pre & post surgery to produce the best outcomes for the patient. In Florida, at Jupiter Medical Center, acupuncture physician Dr. Ken Grey, A.P., D.O.M. performed acupuncture on the patient who wanted the alternative treatment because she was allergic to most pain medications. Grey performed acupuncture prior to her bilateral mastectomy surgery, at the beginning of the procedure, and post-operatively while the patient was recovering. She was able to recover quickly with her post-surgical pain under control, walking the same day as her procedure. She was home after a two-day hospital stay. To read the story click here.
