30 June - 1 July 2017 - RETURN TO WARSAW



The 5th International Conference on Interventional Pain Medicine & Neuromodulation in Central Europe took place on 30 June - 1 July 2017 at the Collegium Anatomicum, Medical University of Warsaw, Poland.

The Interventional Section of the Polish Association for the Study of Pain, the London Pain Forum and the Foundation for the Promotion of Pain Medicine once again joined forces to organise an expert programme of lectures, discussions and hands-on cadaver training with a leading international faculty. We were delighted to introduce for the first time CT guided interventions to the hands-on workshop with great feedback from the participants.

The conference was hosted this year by the Medical University of Warsaw.  Register your interest in attending future international meetings in Poland on the online registration form below.   For further information, contact: ciaranwazir@gmail.com
