Opioid Use clinical trials at UC Davis
2 research studies open to eligible people
A Study of Gabapentin to Reduce Opioid Use After Surgery in Children (The GROUP Study)
open to eligible people ages up to 17 years
The primary objective of this study is to determine if the peri and post operative use of gabapentin in children reduces the need for narcotics after thoracic surgery. We hypothesize that patients who are given gabapentin will need fewer morphine equivalents postoperatively than those who were not given gabapentin
A Study of Opioid Use in Shoulder Arthroplasty Patients
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
The investigators aim to better understand opioid use in patients undergoing elective shoulder surgery. The investigators will prospectively determine actual postoperative opioid use, while evaluating whether implementation of an educational session with pain contract would help minimize opioid use.
Our lead scientists for Opioid Use research studies include Robert M Szabo, MD Gary Raff, MD.
