Dr. Laviana on novel opioid minimization protocol after urologic robotic surgery

"We wanted to implement an opioid minimization pathway that was easy to follow and successful,” says Aaron Laviana, MD.

Aaron Laviana, MD, MBA, discusses the background and results of the study, “Decreased opioid use & equivalent pain score outcomes after urologic robotic surgery using a simplified opioid minimization protocol: a prospective, non-inferiority study,” which he presented at the 2022 AUA Annual Meeting (abstract MP31-02)

Laviana Assistant is a professor of Surgery and Perioperative Care at the University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School.
