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 2 educational parts, including a hands-on cadaver lab, where implantation techniques are reviewed. Further, attendees will have scheduled didactics focusing on the core objectives described below.

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.

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.
