The CREATES study

“Cognitive recovery after elective surgery”

CREATES is an observational study led by Dr. Lori Daiello that uses an innovative brain imaging technique to learn more about the brain health of patients age 70 or older undergoing major surgery at Lifespan’s Rhode Island Hospital or Miriam Hospital . This study aims to better understand why some older people develop lasting changes in their memory and thinking skills after major surgery.
