Photos of the Annual Conference 2014












We would like to invite you to join your colleagues at the 2016 Canadian Neuromodulation Society Annual Meeting. This year the Annual Meeting will take place from September 30-October 2, 2016 at the Hotel Saskatchewan in Regina, SK, as we celebrate 10 years as an organization.

You will not want to miss this chance to network and learn from the experts in the field of neuromodulation. A welcome reception on September 30 and a dinner on October 1 have been scheduled to favour networking opportunities.

In addition, this year we will be coordinating the CNS Meeting with the Saskatchewan Neurosurgical Society’s Kris Kumar Lecture.  The late Dr. Kumar was a giant in the field of neuromodulation and was instrumental in the founding of our organization, so we are pleased to dedicate this year’s conference activities to his memory.

Please check on the CNS website for updates as they become available. We look forward to seeing you at the CNS Annual Meeting, September 30 – October 2, 2016!

Thank you to our sponsors!

Hands-on simulation workshop

The International Neuromodulation Society, in partnership with the Canadian Neuromodulation Society, is pleased to offer the inaugural Simulation Workshop on Sunday, June 7th, 2015 in Montreal, Quebec at McGill University, immediately preceding the INS 12th World Congress. Space is limited, so this interest in participating are encouraged to apply by April 22nd, 2015.  Please click here to apply. 

This program is designed to serve physicians with formal training in pain medicine, neurosurgery, or urology who are interested employing neuromodulation in their practice. It is for those currently in formal training programs (residents and fellows) and for those physicians finished with formal training who have a desire to enhance the neuromodulation offerings in their practice. The course will consist of a four-hour, hands-on cadaver lab, with a 4:1 attendee to faculty ratio, and a four-hour didactic/panel discussion with the world leaders of neuromodulation.  

Neurostimulation strategies that will be reviewed include: tonic spinal cord stimulation, burst spinal cord stimulation, high frequency spinal cord stimulation, dorsal root ganglion stimulation, sacral stimulation, multi-lead systems, high density stimulation, sphenopalatine ganglion stimulation and much more. 

Core requirements to participate include residents or fellows to be in formal neurosurgery, orthopedic, pain medicine, or urology educational programs.  Further, graduates of such programs who have an interest in enhancing the delivery or offerings of neuromodulation in their practices may apply.  The applicant must be a current INS member and must possess privileges or have the ability to obtain privileges for implantable therapies in a hospital or similar facility. A selection committee will review the applications, selecting only INS members in good standing, and will notify those selected for the course.

Please note:  Due to the Formula One Grand Prix Race taking place in Montreal on June 5-7, 2015, we highly recommend that you book your flights and finalize your accommodation as soon as possible.

We hope to see you in Montreal!
