What We Offer
We provide the latest information and training on the different procedural interventions used in Pain Medicine. Our internationally recognised interventional pain cadaver workshops cover the current management of pain within a multidisciplinary framework.
Our curriculum is informed by the most recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic pain conditions, including those resulting from degenerative or neurological disease and cancer.
Of interest to Consultants in Pain Medicine and Anaesthesia, Radiology, Orthopaedic Surgery, Neurosurgery, Palliative Care and Musculosketal Medicine
An international faculty will share their expertise through formal and informal discussions with one to one tuition of interventional techniques. The aim is to allow delegates to practice on cadavers a variety of pain interventions under the guidance of renowned interventionalists.
In accordance with the feedback received we reduced the number of lectures to four fundamental lectures addressing the technical aspects of the interventions and increased the time allocated to practice on cadavers.
The US section was expanded to include spinal interventions in addition to the musculoskeletal workshop.
Optional on day 3 - Specialist workshops (in parallel with the freestyle sessions)
The specialist workshops include new cutting-edge techniques provided on demand and depending on interest. These may include SIJ fusion, minimally invasive discectomy, vertebroplasty.
