Non-narcotic Pain Management System

assured patient smiles in chair

Pain is a constant concern for every patient, and that fear can sometimes cause patients to forego necessary treatment for fear of the suffering they’ll have to endure.

For this, doctors have created many ways to mitigate pain, and these methods have evolved from simple solutions to medical-grade products. In recent years, however, the medical community has become aware of the negative effects of such a dependence upon narcotic-based pain management systems.

Virginia Advanced Surgical Arts is proud to introduce the Exparel® Pain Management system that can produce amazing results without the use of narcotics.

Bringing The Most Pleasant Experience Possible

The Exparel Pain Management System not only eases the pain but also reduces the need for strong narcotic drugs thanks to a multimodal pain management system. This system eliminates the possibility of narcotic dependence and can bypass any possibility of narcotic resistance or accidental overdosage of the drugs.

Our oral surgeons have been treating patients with Exparel for quite a while now, and the results are amazing. Not only do patients report less pain after surgery, but they live healthier and recover faster because their body is healing instead of using resources fighting off the effects of the pain medication.

Exparel can be used for many different types of surgery, including:

Wisdom teeth extractions

Dental implants

Jaw and facial surgery

How Exparel Can Get You Back on Your Feet

Exparel is revolutionizing the way doctors implement multimodal pain management systems. Virginia Advanced Surgical Arts is one of the first practices to use Exparel within a post-surgical pain management system in the DC area. We have put together this eBook to explain the facts of this system and how it will benefit you in the long run.

For a quick introduction to Exparel, the process begins when the doctor places Exparel into the surgical area during the procedure. Exparel has specially formulated bupivacaine, a type of local anesthetic, that is designed to release into the body over a long period of time for lasting pain management and relief.

Exparel numbs the pain where the surgery was performed, and it doesn’t have long-term and wide-reaching bodily effects because it doesn’t interact with the rest of the body.

What Our Patients Say


“I felt welcomed and valued from the second I walked in the door to the moment I left. Every person I interacted with- from the front desk staff, to the surgical assistants, and even the doctor himself- was kind, informative, and helpful. I had my wisdom teeth removed on Friday and was back to work with only a mild and easily manageable headache on Monday. They gave clear instructions on how to prevent infection and dry socket, and even called to check up on me the day of and week after my procedure! I strongly recommend this office to anyone who is searching for the services they offer.

Jacquelyn Candito


“Everyone was super nice, friendly, and courteous. The office is clean and modern. Everyone was professional and seemed pretty organized. I got to watch Netflix laying down while I waited as well. The staff was nice enough to even switch it to a show I recommended!! Also, there are snacks and drinks available for your drivers waiting on you. As someone who is wary of going to the dentist, it was a great experience and I’d recommend this place! Cute valentines day decorations when I was there too!”
