Opioids are a traditional anesthesia mainstay but are associated with adverse effects. Recent data suggests that perioperative exposure to opioids may predispose patients to opioid dependence. In response to the American Society of Anesthesiologists’ statement encouraging the use of multimodal analgesia without opioids when possible, the anesthesia community shifted toward enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols and opioid-sparing techniques using regional anesthesia, nonopioid analgesics, and adjuncts.5 The efficacy of these techniques makes opioid-free anesthesia (OFA) a feasible option.5 When compared to traditional opioid-based anesthesia (OBA), is OFA capable of providing equivalent postoperative pain control?
