Our Team

Anita's Story

After two knee replacement surgeries with another health care provider, Anita Oberlander wanted her hip replacement surgery to be managed in a new way. Anita asked her orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Rifat Zaidi, to find pain management solution that would not involve the use of opioids, as they made her feel confused and dizzy. After extensive research, Dr. Zaidi identified a non-opioid medication called Exparel.
