This half-day intensive workshop, featuring basic lumbar spinal injection techniques, provides didactic, hands-on, and case discussions to provide further understanding of the role of basic lumbar spinal injections in spine care. The workshop will progress your knowledge and skill, utilizing cadavers for demonstration of anatomic fluoroscopic structure in correlation with the various procedures. Residents and fellows are highly encouraged to attend, though all providers are welcome as space allows.
Experienced faculty, many who are involved with the with the NASS Interventional Spine and Musculoskeletal Medicine (ISMM) Fellowship Program, will provide an intimate opportunity to improve knowledge regarding patient selection and technique for lumbar epidural steroid injections, lumbar medial branch blocks, and sacroiliac joint injections. This course will provide both formal didactic and hands-on training with cadavers. Anatomic fluoroscopic structural correlations with various lumbar injection procedures will be covered. An up- to- date literature review pertinent to the included procedures will also be covered
