Dr. Brendan Carvalho is currently as an Associate Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology, Stanford University Medical Center, California, USA. He received his medical degree from the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa in 1994 and specialized in Anesthesiology in the United Kingdom obtaining his FRCA from the Royal College of Anaesthetists in 2000. After completing an Obstetric Anesthesia fellowship at Stanford University, he remained on staff at Stanford University Medical Center.
He is primarily interested in clinical and translational research covering various aspects related to cesarean anesthesia and labor analgesia. His current area of research focus is post-cesarean pain, predicting pain, pregnancy-induced changes in pain perception, long-acting neuraxial opioids, and patient-controlled epidural labor analgesia. In addition, he has done research on patient perception of cesarean anesthesia risk, determination of effective local anesthetic dosing for intrathecal cesarean anesthesia and peripartum experimental pain thresholds and tolerances. His main research interest lies in developing novel ways of improving post-cesarean and peripartum labor pain. He hope to understand pregnancy-induced changes in pain perception and the mechanism behind post-operative pain. In the future,he hope we will be able to identify patients at risk and prevent the development persistent post-cesarean pain.
