Exparel© is a unique technology that allows for the local anesthetic pain-relieving effect to last 2-3 days. This is significantly longer than the 6-8 hours provided by traditionally available local anesthetics. Bupivicaine (the local anesthetic used in Exparel©) is suspended in small lipid particles that break down over 2-3 days, causing a continuous, gradual release of the pain-relieving medicine.

Studies done in surgical patients receiving Exparel© show a dramatic reduction in opioid (narcotic) use and significantly better pain control. This improved postsurgical pain may also result in more mobility after surgery, less risk of complications, and an overall faster recovery. Exparel© has also proven to be as safe as, if not safer, than traditional local anesthetics. Studies show no detrimental effect on wound healing.
