7:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Certificate of Attendance: Peripheral Nerve Stimulation

Co-directed by Michael A. Fishman, MD MBA, and Einar Ottestad, MD, the Certificate of Attendance course in peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) is a groundbreaking course that will provide evidence-based and expert-driven instruction on PNS. This course will utilize ultrasound and fluoroscopy for PNS targets in the extremities, trunk, pelvis, and head/neck. The course will include a comprehensive didactic offering, cadaver lab, live scan models, and anatomic dissections. The faculty is composed of ultrasound gurus and peripheral nerve surgeons.

7:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Hands-On Cadaver Course for Engineers

This premier opportunity offers engineers the opportunity to learn cutting-edge neuromodulation techniques and principles of implementation in clinical practice under the direction of experienced faculty. This event combines didactics on spinal cord stimulation, deep brain stimulation, and intrathecal drug delivery, as well as other approved clinical applications of neuromodulation strategies, with practical hands-on training in a cadaver laboratory. By developing a broader understanding of the existing technologies and their current applications, attendees will be better equipped to identify and understand the importance of device design and the improvements necessary to advance the field of neuromodulation. This workshop intends to foster a platform for multidisciplinary networking opportunity and create excitement in the neuromodulation space through shared lectures and content with concomitant Pain, Neurosurgery, and Neurology workshops.

7:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Neuromodulation for Advanced Implantable Therapies: A Hands-On Cadaver Course for Neurosurgery Residents and Fellows

This event combines didactics on deep brain stimulation, laser ablation and responsive neurostimulation for epilepsy, spinal cord stimulation, dorsal root ganglion stimulation, and intrathecal drug delivery systems, as well as other approved clinical applications of neuromodulation strategies, with practical hands-on training in a cadaver laboratory. The course targets neurosurgery residents and fellows in providing them with the opportunity to learn cutting-edge neuromodulation techniques and principles of implementation in clinical practice. Participants are under the direction of experienced faculty.

7:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Neuromodulation for Advanced Implantable Therapies: A Hands-On Cadaver Course for Pain Fellows

This event combines didactics on spinal cord stimulation, dorsal root ganglion stimulation, and intrathecal drug delivery systems, as well as other approved clinical applications of neuromodulation strategies, with practical hands-on training in a cadaver laboratory. This premier training opportunity offers pain medicine fellows the opportunity to learn cutting-edge neuromodulation techniques and principles of implementation in clinical practice. Techniques explored include spinal cord and dorsal root ganglion stimulation trials and implants, intrathecal drug delivery trials and implants, deep brain stimulation trials and implants, and maintenance of neuromodulation therapies. Participants are under the direction of experienced faculty. Workshop participants must be members of NANS in good standing and are selected by an application and lottery process. This workshop's intent is to foster a platform for multidisciplinary networking opportunity and create excitement in the neuromodulation space through shared lectures and content with concomitant Neurology and Engineering workshops.
