  • The Use of Virtual Reality to Reduce Anxiety and Pain in Perioperative Settings

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    We will investigate whether the use of Virtual Reality (VR) preoperatively and intraoperatively can help treat pain and anxiety, as measured by patient feedback, vital signs trends, and the amounts of anesthetics, pain medications and anxiolytics used during surgical procedures. The VR intervention will be studied during short hand surgeries normally performed using local anesthesia and sedation.
