Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Psychiatry

Thomas R. Tölle focuses on Neuropathic pain, Anesthesia, Physical therapy, Neuroscience and Sensory system. His Neuropathic pain research integrates issues from Threshold of pain, Chronic pain and Sensation. His Anesthesia study incorporates themes from Placebo, Number needed to treat and Hyperalgesia.

His research investigates the connection between Physical therapy and topics such as Internal medicine that intersect with issues in Nervous system. When carried out as part of a general Neuroscience research project, his work on Thalamus, Anterior cingulate cortex, Posterior cingulate and Human brain is frequently linked to work in Context, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His study in Sensory system is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sensory loss and Allodynia.

His most cited work include:

  • Quantitative sensory testing in the German Research Network on Neuropathic Pain (DFNS): Standardized protocol and reference values (1516 citations)
  • painDETECT: a new screening questionnaire to identify neuropathic components in patients with back pain (1243 citations)
  • Quantitative sensory testing in the German Research Network on Neuropathic Pain (DFNS): Somatosensory abnormalities in 1236 patients with different neuropathic pain syndromes (661 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Thomas R. Tölle mostly deals with Anesthesia, Neuropathic pain, Internal medicine, Neuroscience and Physical therapy. The study incorporates disciplines such as Placebo and Stimulation in addition to Anesthesia. His Neuropathic pain research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Hyperalgesia, Chronic pain and Sensory system.

His Sensory system study which covers Sensory loss that intersects with Threshold of pain. His study looks at the relationship between Internal medicine and topics such as Endocrinology, which overlap with Metabotropic glutamate receptor, Opioid receptor, Metabotropic glutamate receptor 1 and Human brain. His Physical therapy research includes elements of Back pain, Evidence-based medicine, Depression and Low back pain.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Anesthesia (23.47%)
  • Neuropathic pain (23.00%)
  • Internal medicine (19.72%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Neuropathic pain (23.00%)
  • Chronic pain (16.43%)
  • Anesthesia (23.47%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Thomas R. Tölle mainly investigates Neuropathic pain, Chronic pain, Anesthesia, Hyperalgesia and Opioid. His studies in Neuropathic pain integrate themes in fields like Physical therapy, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Sensory loss and Nociception. The Physical therapy study combines topics in areas such as Retrospective cohort study and Low back pain.

His Chronic pain study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Noxious stimulus, Electroencephalography, Intensive care medicine and Opioid analgesics, Opioid-Related Disorders. While the research belongs to areas of Anesthesia, Thomas R. Tölle spends his time largely on the problem of Anxiety, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Depression, Duloxetine Hydrochloride and Mood. His Allodynia study in the realm of Hyperalgesia connects with subjects such as Body region.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Peripheral neuropathic pain: a mechanism-related organizing principle based on sensory profiles. (239 citations)
  • Gabapentin for chronic neuropathic pain in adults (139 citations)
  • Stratifying patients with peripheral neuropathic pain based on sensory profiles : algorithm and sample size recommendations (72 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Psychiatry
  • Surgery

His primary areas of investigation include Neuropathic pain, Sensory loss, Anesthesia, Sensory system and Physical therapy. His Neuropathic pain research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Epidemiology, Prospective cohort study, Multiple sclerosis, Expanded Disability Status Scale and Beck Depression Inventory. His Sensory loss study combines topics in areas such as Threshold of pain and Hyperalgesia.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Stroke, Chronic pain and Case-control study. Thomas R. Tölle has included themes like Nociception, Perception and Sensation in his Sensory system study. His Physical therapy study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Rating scale, Randomized controlled trial, Retrospective cohort study, Subgroup analysis and Low back pain.
