The course was part of the 82nd Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), held in San Francisco earlier this month.
“It was a pleasure to participate in the pain course, with colleagues all of whom are leaders in the field of neurosurgical pain management,” said Dr. Winfree. “It was clear from each of the talks that the immediate future in pain management is quite promising. New techniques and updated technologies may enable patients to obtain better pain relief with less invasive treatment options. Especially promising is the introduction of high frequency spinal cord stimulation, which may enable patients who do not respond to conventional spinal cord stimulation to get the pain relief they need to live better lives. This should have a big impact on patient outcomes.”
Dr. Winfree specializes in the surgical management of peripheral nerve disorders and chronic pain. Many chronic pain conditions are actually caused by peripheral nerve injuries. Thus, the combination of peripheral nerve and pain neurosurgical techniques allows for the optimal management of these disorders.
