North American Neuromodulation Society

Getting Involved

The NANS Board of Directors recognizes that the lifeblood of any society is related to the entrance of new members and the retention of current members. The society hosts an annual meeting, rich in content and dedicated to provide a forum for unbiased data presentation and membership dialogue. Preconference offerings include the NANS I3 Forum, which provides a robust exchange with industry for innovation to promote safety and improve patient outcomes. The society also hosts yearly workshops focusing on neuromodulation safety and implementation. The goal and direction of these workshops not only involves hands-on training with cadaveric specimens and didactic lessons, but more importantly, in specialty and sub-specialty integration. Physicians and midlevel providers in pain management, neurosurgery, neurology and urology are brought together to learn the multidisciplinary approach to patient selection, implantation, and management.

These courses have continued to grow each year becoming one of the largest international courses available and brought to the forefront the integration of neuromodulation among these various specialties: reflecting a major mission of NANS; patient safety.

NANS’ major Programs are broken down into several groups and objectives as follows:

  1. NANS Neuromodulation Workshop
