2nd NSANZ Cadaver Course:

NSANZ Cadaver Workshop 2017

Following the success of the inaugural NSANZ Cadaver Workshop 2016, NSANZ is pleased to offer its members and associates a second Cadaver Workshop to be held on Sunday, 29 October 2017 at Macquarie University, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Building F10A | 2 Technology Place, Macquarie University, NSW from 8.00am – 4.00pm.  

The clinical timetable will focus on the hands-on aspects of neurostimulation. It will aim to support those starting out but also cater for more experienced implanters.  It will mainly focus on spinal cord stimulation but will also feature DRG and sacral nerve neurostimulation and with enough cadavers, will also feature a station on peripheral nerve stimulation like cluneal nerve and craniofacial stimulation.

The panel of educators will include the NSANZ Executive Board: Dr Richard Sullivan, Dr Nick Christelis, Dr Frank Thomas, Dr Murray Taverner, Dr Marc Russo, Dr Paul Verrills and Dr James Yu as well as Associate Professor Tillman Boesel and Dr Willem Volschenk.

This is a valuable opportunity to have one-on-one time with these experts in Neuromodulation.  Spaces are limited, allowing for a more targeted and individualised experience for you so we advise to register early.

Program

On behalf of the Neuromodulation Society of Australia and New Zealand (NSANZ), I extend a warm invitation to doctors and allied health members to join us as at the 2018 Neuromodulation Society of Australia and New Zealand 13th Annual Scientific Meeting, 7 – 8 April 2018, being held at the International Convention Centre, Sydney.

The meeting program will be led by a number of esteemed international and national guest speakers including Professor Julie Pilitsis from University of Massachusetts, USA and Professor Frank Huygen from the University Hospital Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Between them they have over 250 publications and have contributed significantly to neuromodulation. They bring expertise in both spinal cord, dorsal root ganglion, peripheral nerve and deep brain stimulation as well as advanced management of complex regional pain syndrome and evidence based medicine.  

We look forward to welcoming you to this successful, world–class gathering.
