Dr. Buchheit serves as Director of the Regenerative Pain Therapies Program in the Duke Center for Translational Pain Medicine (CTPM), and practices Pain Medicine at both Duke University and the Durham VAMC. His research focus is on the local and systemic inflammatory mechanisms that drive pain in arthritis and nerve injury. He has led and participated in several multicenter research projects that have studied patients at Duke, the Durham VAMC, and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, clarifying post-amputation pain phenotypes and mechanisms that drive the chronification of pain. These research pursuits have guided the clinical and translational programs of CTPM that strive develop biologically-based methods for the treatment of arthritis and degenerative musculoskeletal conditions. The program’s overarching goal is to move beyond opioids, steroids and anti-inflammatory medications for the treatment of pain.
