Ask the Doctor: Chronic pain treatment

Health

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – In this week’s Ask the Doctor segment, we are talking about new research on a treatment for chronic pain. It involves a drug that is not an opioid.

For more insight, News 8’s Darren Kramer spoke with Dr. Beth Collins. Collins is double board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Some of the questions we asked:

– How is chronic pain defined?

– What does the treatment entail?

– When would this treatment be put to use?

Check out the video above for Dr. Beth’s answers, and catch News 8 at 5 p.m. every Wednesday for our “Ask the Doctor” segments.
