This full-day educational activity will provide physicians and healthcare providers with a review of the medical and surgical management of peripheral nerve disorders. Lectures were chosen to cover all aspects of peripheral nerve pathology, including injury and tumors. Speakers will cover basic mechanisms of injury with an emphasis on potential new treatment approaches. The neuroradiological investigation of nerve injury and tumors will be reviewed. The use of electrophysiology as a tool to diagnose and follow patients with peripheral nerve conditions will be described, including the use if intra-operative neuromonitoring. Neurosurgeons with extensive experience in treating these conditions will describe the latest surgical approaches to these conditions. This will include direct nerve repair, nerve transfer techniques, decompression and tumor resection. The early rehabilitation of patients with peripheral nerve injury will be presented. Management of the long-term effects of nerve injury will be discussed, including the use of peripheral nerve and spinal cord electrical stimulation. Lecturers were chosen for their excellence as teachers, as well as their clinical expertise, to help clinicians integrate this knowledge into your practices and improve patient care. This course will be of interest to primary care physicians, emergency room physicians, radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons , physical medical physicians, pain management physicians , along with allied health professionals and nurses.
