Neuromodulation Strategies for Visceral Pain

4:00 PM - 5:30 PM Saturday, January 19

This session will focus on the current understanding of neuromodulation as a therapeutic alternative for patients with visceral pain. Mechanisms behind the therapeutic effect of spinal cord stimulation on the visceral system will be explored. The current state of clinical evidence will be discussed.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Explain the mechanisms behind the therapeutic effect of spinal cord stimulation in patients with visceral pain.
  • Identify the novel therapies for visceral pain patients.
  • Describe the clinical evidence of neuromodulation as a therapeutic alternative for visceral pain patients.
