Prescription opioid abuse has reached epidemic proportions in our country. Many problems with abuse start with exposure to opioids during the surgical period. Eric will be creating better models to predict which people will be more vulnerable to the addictive nature of opioids. This will be followed by helping these patients with safer approaches to pain management during their surgeries.
