Course Overview

Advancements in neurorehabilitation are occurring at an extraordinary rate. Neurologists, Neurosurgeons and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation professionals need an opportunity learn about the latest developments in the field, exchange ideas and concepts, and create new strategies for the treatment of neurological injury and disease. This comprehensive one day program will bring together leaders in the field of neuro-restorative care to provide practical scientific information, advances in medicine and research and cutting-edge innovative technology in the field. Topics span the continuum of care and include neurorestoration, neuromodulation, transcranial direct stimulation, stem cells, radiology and orthopedic interventions. A strong emphasis on the need for increased quality, efficiency, and value in response to health care reform will be a consistent theme throughout the course as we continue our quest for excellence in neuro-restorative treatment and care.
