NASS SILACO Advanced Lumbar Spinal Injection Techniques

Bogota, Colombia
Starts: 8:00AM Sat Oct 27, 2018 Ends: 1:00PM Sun Oct 28, 2018

This one-day intensive workshop is intended to advance the existing skills of spine practitioners from a multi-specialty perspective.

Distinguished faculty combines didactic instruction and hands-on lab-based training with topics related to the clinical evaluation of complex pain and functional impairment. Noninterventional rehabilitation to manage complex pain disorders combined with interventional skills also are included. Advanced management options including the role of radiofrequency rhizotomy (lumbar spine), vertebral augmentation options, neuromodulation including spinal cord stimulation, and intra-thecal therapies are presented.

Spinal anatomy, patient selection, and high yield clinical pearls (with radiographic correlations and quantitative functional assessment) are covered in depth. Interactive round-table discussions allow open discussion with attendees and faculty on important topics such as indications, risks, literature controversies in peer-review process, and pitfalls. Additionally, faculty will discuss outcome monitoring as part of the skill-set in treating complex pain disorders and their associated functional impairments and disability.
