THE COURSES

PAIN MANAGEMENT

The course is designed for physicians (pain specialists, anesthesiologists, neurosurgeons and orthopedist), interested in the practice of pain management, who seek the latest developments in interventional techniques, also seeking a introduction or review of proven interventional techniques. By attending, participants will be able to Physicians should be able to integrate multiple aspects of in interventional pain management in treating their patients so that patients have better outcomes. Our  hands on cadaver course will promote a better understanding of the anatomy and pathophysiology, involved in chronic pain, and critically review stateof-the-art interventional techniques for management of chronic pain.

After participation in our course, participants should have an understanding of:

 

Basic neuroanatomy related with the performance of pain therapies.

  • Identify questions that need to be addressed to increase knowledge of interventional procedures used in pain treatment.

  • Perform spinal procedures of the cervical, dorsal lumbar, spine and pélvis.

THE ENDOSCOPIC SPINE SURGERY

The M.I.S course (Minimally Invasive Surgical) message to treat spinal pathologies is very clear. The minimization of the tissue injury in the surgical approach diminish the complications associated with the surgical act. The endoscopy is the most legitime M.I.S procedure to accomplish the maximization of surgery aim with less invasive injury. The spine endoscopic surgery cadaver lab training has the objective to demonstrate the endoscopic tool as a safe option in the management of spinal diseases.

This hands-on cadaver course will focus on the major currently available minimally invasive surgical techniques, including transforaminal and interlaminar approaches. Using a state-of-the-art facility, these techniques will be taught by the Brazil´s experts in each of these techniques. This Interventional Techniques course includes: one day hands on cadaver course.
