Researchers at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the Department of Orthopedic Surgery are looking for volunteers to participate in a research study examining pain and sleep following knee replacement surgery. Qualified patients have knee osteoarthritis, are at least 45 years old, and are scheduled for an upcoming total knee replacement surgery.
The study involves four in-person sensory testing sessions (heat, cold, and pressure), which last between 1 to 5 hours each at the Johns Hopkins Bayview campus. Two of the sessions will involve blood draws. All sessions involve completing questionnaires. Participants will earn $900 for completion of all study procedures and parking reimbursement. If you are interested in volunteering, please call Megan Pejsa at 410-550-7902 or the Behavioral Medicine Research Lab at 410-550-7000 for more information.
