Northern California CalSIPP Fellows Cadaver Course – May 12th 2018
This past May, CalSIPP held its first Northern California fellows cadaver course. With the help of the esteemed faculty – Dr. Lawrence Poree, Dr. Ruben Kalra, Dr. Line Jacque, Dr. Mark Wallace, Dr. Scott Pritzlaff, Dr. Ramo Naidu, Dr. Eric Lee, Dr. Charles DeMesa, Dr. Lisa Kroopf, Dr. Vafi Salmasi and Dr. Samir Sheth, and our industry support from Boston Scientific, Nuvectra, Medtronic, Nevro, Stimwave, SPR therapeutics, Bioness and Abbott – CalSIPP’s fellows cadaver course was extremely successful and very well received. The morning consisted of 5 didactic lectures covering fundamental spinal cord, dorsal root ganglion and peripheral nerve stimulation principles followed by a lively panel discussion. The afternoon consisted of 5 cadaver stations focusing on refining neuromodulation techniques including spinal cord stimulation, peripheral nerve stimulation, suturing and surgical techniques. There was also a live model for musculoskeletal ultrasound as a complement to the cadaveric ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve station.
Dr. Samir Sheth and Dr. Vafi Salmasi, as course directors, would like to extend a big thank you to the faculty, the industry sponsorship and to Dr. Jason Pope and Stephanie Aycock.
