  • Anatomy of the vertebral body 
  • Pedicular approach to vertebral augmentation
  • Kyphoplasty via the suprapedicular approach
  • Pathophysiology of lumbar facet mediated pain
  • Differential diagnosis
  • Lumbar and cervical spinal anatomy
  • Latest lumbar radio frequency techniques
  • Indications for spinal cord stimulation
  • Cervical and lumbar spinal cord stimulation trial techniques
  • Spinal cord stimulation implantation techniques for cervical and lumbar spine

Hands On Cadaveric Lab:

  • Vertebroplasty (1 thoracic & 1 lumbar station)
  • Kyphoplasty (1 thoracic & lumbar station)
  • Neurotomy (1 cervical & 1 lumbar station)
