JOIN US in the medieval city of Torun, Poland for the 4th International Conference on Interventional Pain Medicine & Neuromodulation due to take place on 18 & 19 June 2015.

Following the successes of the conferences in Wroclaw 2011, Sopot 2012 and Warsaw 2013, we have chosen the birthplace of the great astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus for our next meeting in the centre of Europe.

The Interventional Section of the Polish Association for the Study of Pain, the Polish Neuromodulation Society and the London Pain Forum are once again joining forces to organise an expert programme of lectures and discussions from a leading international faculty.

We are also delighted to announce that we will be organising our 8th Hands-on Cadaver Workshop on Pain Intervention, Neuromodulation & Ultrasound after the Torun Conference on Saturday, 20 June 2015 at the Medical University of Gdansk.  For further information on the workshop, visit the WORKSHOP 2015 INFO PAGE

14-16 June 2013 - 3rd International Conference, Warsaw, Poland




THE THIRD International Conference on Interventional Pain Medicine & Neuromodulation took place in Warsaw, Poland on 14th to 16th June 2013. We were honoured to organise  a satellite symposium for the 11th INS World Congress on peripheral neuromodulation during the conference. The three day international event in Warsaw was a joint effort of the Polish Neuromodulation Society, the Interventional Section of the Polish Association for the Study of Pain and the London Pain Forum, in collaboration with the Argentinian Neuromodulation Society (SANE).


Day One at the Hotel Bristol included sessions on interventional pain medicine, ultrasound in pain medicine and neuromodulation for both pain management and movement disorders from a leading faculty.

Day Two at the Royal Castle marked the first international symposium on peripheral neuromodulation and covered a whole range of topics from basic sciences through to new targets and techniques with lectures from key experts in this field

Day Three at the Staszic Palace, Polish Academy of Sciences, gave participants of the conference a chance to attend Poland's first Ultrasound in Pain Medicine Hands-on Workshop.
