Nebojsa Nick Knezevic, MD

Dr. Nebojsa Nick Knezevic presents factors that influence a surgeon’s decision to stop or continue with anticoagulant therapy before surgical pain procedures. Dr. Knezevic begins with a discussion of low to intermediate-risk pain procedures. He presents published reports of complications experienced by real patients. Dr. Knezevic presents evidence that shows that surgeons must consider the risk of the procedure, reasons for antithrombotic use, and anatomical changes and pathologies linked to the anticoagulant.
