Neurology Neuromodulation Workshop

The Neurology Neuromodulation Workshop offers PGY-3 and PGY-4 Neurology Residents didactic learning and a cadaver lab to study neuromodulation therapies, highlighting the role of the Neurologist in a multidisciplinary setting. Attendees train in the use of deep brain stimulation, intrathecal medication management for pain and spasticity, and neuromodulation for chronic pain. 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 Pain Management, Neurosurgery, and Engineering workshops.

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.

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.

Certificate of Attendance: Advanced Neuraxial Neuromodulation

The purpose of the Certificate of Attendance course is to provide an educational platform, offered through NANS, to educate and train physician providers on the evidence-based and appropriate utilization of implantable therapies for pain management (dorsal root ganglion stimulation, spinal cord stimulation, and intrathecal drug delivery). The course will consist of two educational parts, including a hands-on cadaver lab, where implantation techniques are reviewed. Further, attendees will have scheduled didactics focusing on the course learning objectives.

Spinal Cord Stimulation Programming: Basics, Science, Coding

This crucial and exciting workshop will present the principles needed to program your spinal cord stimulation patients (SCS), understand the science behind electricity to neural tissue, explore waveforms and new technology, and understand the coding of programming in your practice. The target audience is clinicians that currently utilize or are interested in incorporating SCS programming into your clinical practice. The field of neuromodulation is rapidly evolving and several technologies are now clinically available. These systems have diverse lead and stimulation paradigms. It is not always clear how different designs or waveform parameters affect the neural response and corresponding efficacy of the stimulation. Therefore, the goal of this course is to provide clinicians with a framework to understand and implement programming in their practice.

Introduction to Intraoperative Neuromonitoring for Spinal Cord Stimulation

The field of neuromodulation is rapidly evolving and the use of intraoperative neuromonitoring for Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) has grown tremendously for both interventional pain physicians and surgeons. The Neurostimulation Appropriateness Consensus Committee (NACC) guidelines recommend that any sedated/asleep patient having a SCS placed have intraoperative neuromonitoring for both safety and confirmation of lead placement. This timely and first of its kind workshop will present the principles needed to implement and use intraoperative neuromonitoring for your SCS patients. It will review the basics of set up, interpretation of data, implementation in practice, and the future uses. The target audience is any clinicians that currently use SCS in their practice. This will be valuable and needed for those placing SCS in sedated patients, but also those who may be interested in implanting this rapidly growing change in care. The goal of this course is to provide clinicians with a framework to understand and implement intraoperative neuromonitoring in their practice.
