Ongoing Study

Chole: The need for post-operative opioids and time to cholecystectomy in pediatric general surgery: a retrospective review

Principal Investigator: Dr. Anna Shawyer

This study will review the medical charts of children who undergo laparoscopic cholecystectomy in Winnipeg to better understand wait times and opioid use for such surgeries. The goal of this project is to determine if these children can be safely discharged home on the same day of surgery while still making sure their post-surgery pain is well-managed.
