  • Opioid Use


The purpose of this study is to collect information to evaluate the role of the psychogenic component of pain induced by anxiety on postoperative outcomes in major orthopaedic surgery and to determine whether hypnosis therapy provided during the perioperative period will lead to decreased use of opioid therapy. Patients are randomly assigned to one of two treatment groups: (I) usual care, or; (II) hypnotherapy treatment. Patients have an equal chance of being assigned to one of the two groups.
