  • Malignant Solid Neoplasm

Purpose:

This trial studies the impact of virtual reality experiences on anxiety before surgery and pain after surgery. The goal of this study is to examine how different virtual reality experiences may help reduce anxiety and improve pain control, which may help reduce the need for medications such as opioids.
