Research My Research

Research Summary

My research interests are primarily in regional anesthesiology and opioid sparing pain management techniques. I am the principal investigator in the IRB approved study of Liposomal bupivacaine (Exparel) plus Bupivacaine 0.5% versus Bupivacaine 0.5% for total shoulder replacement patients. The study wants to determine if adding Exparel to plain Bupivaceine in an interscalene nerve block will prolong the block and make a difference in patient pain scores and satisfaction from 24-72 hours after surgery and beyond. The study primary endpoints are pain scores and opioid consumption from 24-72  hours post-operatively.
