Dr. Antoine Khoury Featured on KNBC-TV Highlighting New Pain Management Technique

CHOC researcher and chief of pediatric urology, Dr. Antoine “Tony” Khoury was recently featured in one of Dr. Bruce Hensel’s health segments on KNBC-TV. Following findings published by him and colleagues in the December 2013 online issue of the Journal of Pediatric Urology, Dr. Khoury has garnered attention for his research into and use of the ON-Q pain relief system to improve pain control in children undergoing urological procedures. While the ON-Q system is well established as an effective pain management technique for adults, Dr. Khoury’s study is the first to evaluate its effectiveness in children.
