The North American Neuromodulation Society (NANS), formerly the American Neuromodulation Society (ANS), was formed in 1994 through the efforts of physicians dedicated to patient care through the field of neuromodulation. The society is a chapter of the International Neuromodulation Society (INS). NANS is a non-profit organization devoted to the advancement of the field of neuromodulation within the United States. NANS is devoted to the pursuit of excellence in the application of all neuromodulation therapies. Neuromodulation is often defined as the application of targeted electrical, chemical and biological technologies to the nervous system in order to improve function and quality of life.
We are actively involved in the following areas:
With our current membership of more than 1000 members, we now represent the most active implanters in the field. The majority of these members are working in pain related disciplines. NANS membership currently consists of practitioners from anesthesiology, neurosurgery, neurology, physical medicine & rehabilitation, basic science, and electrical engineering, to name just a few. We actively pursue members working in other neuromodulation areas such as epilepsy, urinary incontinence, angina, and movement disorders. In addition, taking the lead of the INS, we are opening forums for presenting the work of our colleagues who deal with functional electrical stimulation for patients with quadriplegia and paraplegia or paralysis due to brain injury and stroke.
As can be seen through the above information, the North American Neuromodulation Society is a vital and growing organization positioned to continue advancing the field of neuromodulation in the 21st century.
The success of the North American Neuromodulation Society is dependent on your input and ideas. We want to know what you think, want, and need from us. Your ideas are actively solicited.
