Friday April 24. By Invitation only of teams from across Canada and abroad. Join us for an experts day of advanced spasticity procedures in the UBC Anatomy Lab. We will be led by a team of French orthopedic surgeons and Physiatrists on the techniques of percutaneous tenotomy designed for the bedside. The Surgeons will then offer an advanced upper and lower extremity tenotomy, muscle lengthening and neurectomy course. Dr. Emily Krauss will teach selective microfascicular neurectomy and Dr. Goetz, intrinsic release.   In the afternoon physiatrists will focus on nerve specific procedures, such as nerve blocks, phenol and maximizing toxin management.  This is the first of its kind in Canada. Dr. Mary Ann Keenan, the ground-breaking American emeritus spasticity surgeon will be available for expert opinion.

Saturday April 25.  Open to all delegates.  We will introduce percutaneous bedside tenotomy by French physiatrists and orthopedic surgeons as well as complex surgical techniques to address contracture by Canadian, French and American experts.  Discover nerve targeted procedures, including laser and cryoneurotomy.  Learn to manage complex spasticity patterns from start to end stage.  The afternoon will be spent learning surface anatomy and ultrasound targeting for the diagnostic nerve block, the key to muscle selection to direct care.  We will maximize your spasticity care, from toxin targetting to surgical collaboration. Watch our case videos in the tab above.
