Dr. Mark Romanoff Speaks to ASC Focus Magazine About the Opioid Related Overdose Trend
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that more people died from drug overdoses in 2014 than any other year on record. A majority of drug overdose deaths – more than 60 percent – involve an opioid. And nearly 80 Americans die daily from an opioid overdose. ASCs can help reduce these figures without compromising quality, says Mark Romanoff, MD.
