Perioperative Pain clinical trials at UCSF

1 research study open to eligible people

The discomfort that occurs before, during, and after a surgery is called perioperative pain. UCSF is researching whether using Virtual Reality (VR) during these times can lessen the pain. The research is also investigating if VR can reduce anxiety linked to surgeries.

  • Virtual Reality to Reduce Anxiety and Pain in Perioperative Settings

    open to eligible people ages 18-75

    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.
