    Biography
      Dr. Abraham is a staff anesthesiologist at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.  He specializes in the management of chronic pain, with a focus on multimodal treatment techniques.   This began with an interest in neuroscience, for which he received his Bachelors of Science at Johns Hopkins University.  His diverse interests in confocal microscopy, peptide processing, and nerve regeneration led to multiple awards and peer-reviewed publications.  After earning his medical degree from the State University of New York, he completed his training in General Anesthesiology and fellowship training in Interventional Pain Management at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.    

    Abstract:

    Chronic pain has continued to grow as a public health concern, now affecting more than 116 million people in the United States. It is the leading cause of disability among American workers. Laboratory testing has become increasingly important in order to care for these patients safely.

    This presentation will review the history and new challenges for treatment inherent in this population
