We realize many of our patients are in pain prior to elective surgery and encourage over the counter medication as needed. If prescription medication is warranted, we ask that your primary care provider manage this prior to surgery. We will manage all post operative pain medications for up to three months after surgery. After surgery, call the Hand Center at 206-598-4263 to speak with the nurse about your medicine refill. Please note that it may take up to 48 hours to refill your prescription, and many pain medications are not allowed to be called or faxed to pharmacies due to drug laws. Please plan accordingly.
