Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Opioid Pills Dispensed [ Time Frame: 1 day (Once after surgery) ]
  2. Number of Opioid Pills Consumed [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System Pain Interference Score [ Time Frame: Once a week for 4 weeks after surgery ]
    Lower scores are better

  2. Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System Pain Intensity Score [ Time Frame: Once a week for 4 weeks after surgery ]
    Lower scores are better
