The focus of this program is lower extremity nerve reconstruction in the amputee patient for the management of neuropathic pain. The course includes didactic and lower extremity hands-on lab sessions on targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR), regenerative peripheral nerve interface (RPNI), and associated nerve repair techniques. This is a level-one course for surgeons new to TMR and RPNI or who intend to perform these procedures.
UPDATE: Course is full

This NERVE MASTER™ symposium will discuss intraoperative nerve assessment and reconstruction options for challenging upper extremity nerve injuries. The faculty will review the use of nerve stimulation for intraoperative nerve assessment using the CHECKPOINT GUARDIAN™ monopolar and CHECKPOINT GEMINI™ bipolar nerve stimulators to inform nerve reconstruction decisions and enhance surgical outcomes. The symposium will include a discussion of the benefits of chitosan to support the body’s peripheral nerve regeneration process using the CHECKPOINT NEUROSHIELD™ Chitosan Membrane.

The focus of this program is upper extremity nerve and tendon transfers through lectures by renowned faculty and a cadaveric dissection lab. Lower extremity functional reconstruction, including nerve transfers and soft tissue coverage, will also be presented as a new experience.
“Small class. Great faculty.”
“Seeing the anatomy was amazing!”
“Lots of practice time in the lab and good instruction.”
Our April 15 NERVE MASTER cadaveric course focused on upper and lower extremity nerve reconstruction in the amputee patient for the management of neuropathic pain. Attendees participated in a hands-on lab session on targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR), regenerative peripheral nerve interface (RPNI), and associated nerve repair techniques. Special thanks to our faculty, Dr. Jason Ko and Dr. Jason Souza, for their leadership and contributions.
