What if there was a way to properly manage chronic pain with opioids? What if there were measures in place to screen patients who need opioids and others who shouldn’t have them? This is what Dr. Sairam Atluri discusses me with on this podcast. He walks through the process of screening patients and understanding the physiological and psychological addictions that take place and how to best deal with them as we continue to put strategies in place to battle opioid abuse.

Dr. Atluri is a pain specialist. He has a fellowship in pain and he’s got a couple of passions regarding this – he’s trained in anesthesia and he’s gone into the world of pain management. He’s certified in regenerative medicine by the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians. He’s dealt with chronic pain patients for over 20 years, and he’s a leader in the field not only in Cincinnati where he works but also around the country.
