The management of OA is well established but there are potential pathways to explore for future applications. This session will review current approaches to management of OA pain and introduce concepts around pathways of pain that may influence future management of the condition.

Duncan Lascelles

Professor of Surgery and Pain Management
North Carolina State University

Dr. Lascelles is currently professor of small animal surgery and pain management at North Carolina State University, with active clinical and research interests in acute and chronic pain. He runs the Comparative Pain Research and Education Centre. After graduating with honors from the veterinary program at the University of Bristol, UK, Dr. Lascelles completed a PhD degree in aspects of preemptive/perioperative analgesia at the University of Bristol. Following an internship there, he completed his surgical residency at the University of Cambridge, UK. He moved to Colorado for the fellowship in oncological surgery at Colorado State University, then a period of postdoctoral research in feline pain and analgesia at the University of Florida. He is board certified in small animal surgery by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, the European College of Veterinary Surgeons, and the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. His research interests include clinical measurement of acute and chronic pain, understanding the basis of pain in animals, and improving methods of alleviation of pain in animals. His work on preemptive analgesia, opioid use in cats, perioperative NSAIDs, outcome measures in canine OA, and feline DJD has had significant impact on the way veterinary medicine is practiced. He has authored more than 200 peer-reviewed research papers and abstracts and over 50 review articles, book chapters, and case reports and has given more than 500 CE presentations and seminars. Dr. Lascelles is particularly interested in the value of naturally occurring painful disease in animals to human health problems.
