Regional/general anesthesiology; acute pain management
My research interests include regional anesthesia, acute pain management, and ambulatory anesthesia.
Our regional anesthesia group have particular interest in resident education and ultrasound guided nerve block. We also have an interest in the use of continuous peripheral catheter systems and liposomal drug delivery systems for prolonged post operative analgesia. We also investigate the effects of regional anesthesia on patient outcomes.
My ambulatory anesthesia research interests include post operative recovery with particular reference to fitness to drive and the use of regional anesthetic techniques in day surgery. I also have an interest in total intravenous anesthesia and target controlled infusion drug delivery systems.
