Extremity and Non-Spinal Injection Procedures and More

Prior to the Hands- On portion of the training, there will be an extensive Question and Answer session not only covering the topics presented, but also to discuss additional topics requested by the audience. This interactive experience is an integral part of the program. Our instructors will go over case studies and various academic problems for the group to solve.

The majority of the afternoon will be spent actually performing the various injection techniques. Providers will train on custom training models specifically designed to perform injection techniques and surgical procedures. Providers will receive extensive hands on training the entire afternoon and should leave the program feeling confident in their techniques.
