The clinical research conducted by W. Michael Hooten, M.D., relates to chronic pain. Dr. Hooten is specifically focused on changes in pain thresholds and tolerances after opioid tapering, the genomics of chronic pain and the effects of smoking on treatment outcomes of chronic pain.
Knowledge of the clinical characteristics associated with the progression of short-term opioid use to an episodic or long-term pattern of use could aid in the identification of at-risk patients and provide the basis for developing targeted clinical interventions to mitigate the risks of unintended prolonged opioid use.
A deeper understanding of the genetics associated with chronic pain may help enhance identification of individualized therapies.
