As a component of a multimodal analgesic approach, psychological and behavioral interventions are gaining popularity and importance with a goal to reduce the doses of the analgesics consumed during the perioperative period. This chapter reviews the use of neurostimulation, including transcutaneous electrical stimulation (TENS), in the postoperative period. The goal is to broaden perspectives on possible components of a multimodal, patient-centered regimen that includes pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic therapies to improve the postoperative experience.
