Experienced faculty will provide an intimate opportunity to improve knowledge regarding patient selection and technique for lumbar epidural steroid injections, facet injections, sacroiliac joint injections, transforaminal injection/selective nerve blocks, medial branch blocks and radiofrequency. In addition to learning about the techniques in doing these procedures, participants will learn some of the literature surrounding them as well as learning risks associated with and how to avoid them.
