Erick Kazarian ’12
Perioperative Pain Protocol and Infection Diagnostics
My internship position was responsible for assisting Dr. Deirmengian in what turned out to be multiple research opportunities. The two primary focuses were to gather all past and present patient information for a long term study to assess the success of pain management on revision hip and knee replacement surgeries. The Second research proposal was to gather information regarding the success of current ways to detect infection in pre-surgical patients, and compare the current statistics to the new system that Dr. Deirmengian has discovered. My primary responsibility in the second proposal was to gather the current information and present it in a way that could be compared against the statistics that the newer system produces.
