In 1999, the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) published what remains the most widely accepted definition of chronic post‐surgical pain (CPSP). This is defined as pain that develops following surgical intervention, after exclusion of other causes, lasting longer than two months, and unrelated to a condition preceding surgery. Within the past decade, CPSP has been intensively studied in order to quantify its epidemiology, risk factors, pathophysiology, prevention and treatment.

Although there have been considerable advances in our knowledge of CPSP, the incidence remains depressingly high. Conservative estimates indicate that 10% of patients may be affected, even after ‘low‐risk’ surgery. This incidence has not changed appreciably over the years, suggesting both that our understanding of CPSP remains incomplete and that our approach to the problem needs to be reconsidered
