We are excited to present this afternoon of simulator training for the insertion of percutaneous spinal cord stimulators at the Exam Schools, Oxford on 10 November 2017, 12.00hrs-17.30hrs, just before the NSUKI Annual Scientific Meeting. The course will consist of lectures covering mechanisms of action of SCS as well as indications and evidence for SCS. The simulator allows practise of SCS insertion as well as ‘difficult scenarios’.
