Lectures will include:

Fundamental procedural aspects for spinal cord stimulation, dorsal root ganglion stimulation and peripheral nerve stimulation, while also providing nuanced technical skills that has been derived from years of clinical experience from our esteemed faculty.

Moreover, the faculty will impart important clinical knowledge for spinal cord stimulation and peripheral nerve stimulation as it pertains to:

  1. Patient selection
  2. Overview of conventional stimulation
  3. Overview of high frequency stimulation
  4. Overview of DRG stimulation
  5. Overview of Burst Stimulation
  6. Overview of peripheral nerve stimulation selection and targets
  7. Panel discussion regarding device selection
  8. Panel discussion regarding management of SCS/PNS: anticoagulation, infection, following up, and reprogramming
  9. Suturing, suturing selection, knot tying.

In order to maximize fellow exposure to the cadavers – we will have two groups. Group A will be with the cadavers first and will have no more than 4 fellows per cadaver. Group B will have lectures first. After 3 hours, the groups will switch. We will then come together at the end to have panel discussions (see #6 and #7). Please note that we will also plan to have a suturing workshop station.
