Peripheral Nerve Blocks Linked to Less Pain, Fewer Opioids in Patients Undergoing Knee Replacement

Researchers are continually working to find treatments that reduce the need for opioids and better manage patient pain. One example is the use of peripheral nerve blocks in patients undergoing the common procedure of a knee replacement. Dr. David Kim of the Hospital for Special Surgery will discuss his findings with the media during a briefing on Saturday April 21st at 9 am in the Press Room (Gilbert) on 4th Floor. Dr. Kim received a Best of Meeting Abstract Award for the 2018 World Congress on Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine. His abstract can be viewed here.
