Neuromodulation Cadaver Course for Neurosurgery and Neurology Residents and Fellows

The Neuromodulation Cadaver Course for Neurosurgery and Neurology Residents and Fellows 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 lab. This workshop offers a platform for multidisciplinary networking opportunities and creates excitement in the neuromodulation space. This course is designed for neurosurgery residents and fellows as well as PGY-3 and PGY-4 neurology residents.

This workshop will take place January 13th, at the Nicholson Center in Orlando, Florida.

Attendees of the Workshop Will Be Provided:

  • Two night's stay (room & tax) on Wednesday, January 12 and Thursday, January 13
  • Round trip airfare (non-refundable coach)
  • Transportation between the Nicholson Center and hotel

To be eligible to complete this survey, your specialty must be in the Neurosurgery or Neurology fields.

Workshop participants must be NANS members in good standing. NANS membership at the Student/Trainee/Resident rate is $50. 

Application due Monday, November 1, 2021, at 1:00 pm CDT.

NANS Advanced Therapies Workshop For Pain and Neuromodulation

On January 13, 2022 the North American Neuromodulation Society will be holding its very first workshop incorporating both neuromodulation therapies as well as minimally invasive spine procedures.

The hands-on lab will incorporate therapies such as spinal cord stimulation, dorsal root ganglion stimulation, peripheral nerve stimulation, deep brain stimulation, intrathecal drug delivery, minimally invasive lumbar decompression, interspinous spacers and fusions, sacroiliac joint fusion, kyphoplasty, and radiofrequency ablation.

Pain medicine and neurology physicians currently in practice, pain medicine fellows, neurosurgery and neurology residents, and engineers are invited to attend. 

For those who have completed or are currently enrolled in an ACGME Pain Medicine fellowship or ACGME Neurosurgical residency, attendance and participation in the neuromodulatory portion of the January lab will count toward the NANS Certification in Neuromodulation.

This workshop provides a fundamental platform on the evidence based and appropriate use of advanced pain and neuromodulation therapies. The course combines a hands-on cadaver lab and scheduled didactics.

Historically the NANS cadaver lab has been the premier workshop for physicians to get hands-on experience with these therapies with a focus on a low attendee-to-faculty ratio as well as evidence-based lectures provided by key opinion leaders in the field. In addition, it is the only workshop that includes pain medicine, neurology, and neurosurgery, and engineers to create a platform for multidisciplinary networking opportunities and collaboration in the pain and neuromodulation space.

This workshop will take place January 13th, at the Nicholson Center in Orlando, Florida.

Attendees of the Workshop Will Be Provided:

  • Two night's stay (room & tax) on Wednesday, January 12 and Thursday, January 13
  • Round trip airfare (non-refundable coach)
  • Transportation between the Nicholson Center and hotel

To be eligible to complete this survey, your specialty must be in the field of PAIN.

Workshop participants must be NANS members in good standing. NANS membership at the Student/Trainee/Resident rate is $50. 

Application due Monday, November 1, 2021, at 1:00 pm CDT.

Application for PAIN Fellows.

Intrathecal Therapy: Case-Based Learning and Hands-On Skill Training

Intrathecal drug delivery is a well-established intervention for chronic pain and severe spasticity with over 3 decades of clinical use. Safe and effective utilization of this technique requires solid cognitive and technical skills. The purpose of this course will be to instruct clinicians on these techniques though a case-based scenarios and hands-on learning stations. Strategies to improve patient selection, trialing, implantation, post-implantation management, troubleshooting, and therapy optimization will be discussed. Multiple medical specialists would find this course of interest including neurology, neurosurgery, anesthesiology and physical medicine and rehabilitation. This course will also be of interest to many allied health professionals such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing, pharmacy, case management and bioengineering.
