Our Vision

By bringing together leaders in the field of musculoskeletal intervention in such a unique, relaxed, accessible setting, LSI aims to achieve four core objectives:

  1. Raise awareness and promote the importance of the various procedures we provide in our practices
  2. Empower the next generation of clinicians to facilitate adoption of best practice of these methods
  3. Offer a premium, personalised spine training experience, unlike any other in a state-of-the art facility
  4. Global networking of like-minded interventional experts, sharing of knowledge, forming collaborations, and encouraging and supporting multi-centre projects

What makes this course different?

We are the UK’s most comprehensive Spine course covering all imaging modalities: Ultrasound, Fluoroscopy and CT-guidance now incorporating industry leading advanced surgical simulation. By incorporating hyper-realistic anatomical models derived from actual patient cases, delegates can practice standard and challenging procedures, manage complications as well as develop better haptic response and visual accuracy than ever before. This takes place under tutelage and mentorship of global experts providing the most authentic training experience possible.

This unique three-day masterclass provides a comprehensive yet personalised approach to spine intervention training from both national and international leaders in Spinal disorders. It provides participants with the knowledge and skills to safely perform imaging-guided spinal procedures on all modern imaging modalities in a state-of-the-art Surgical and Interventional Facility in central London.

Who can attend?

Course Overview

Day 1 Scientific Day

World Renowned Multidisciplinary Spine Experts consisting of Radiologists, Surgeons and Pain Management Clinicians unite for a full day to share their knowledge and teach you the full breadth of evidence based interventional techniques. Together with scientific presentations, networking opportunities with scenic views of the river Thames and Houses of Parliament, this event is not to be missed. 

Days 2 & 3 Hands-on Workshops

Strictly limited to 40 places*, 14 small group workshops over 2 days will leave you feeling much more knowledgeable on what is possible and confident to perform some of these procedures in your practice.

– Understand the principles, indications and techniques of a wide spectrum of spine intervention procedures,
– Understand indications, contra-indications, safety profile and evidence of image-guided procedures for the spine including biopsy, nerve root injections, facet joint and medial branch blocks, rhizolysis, radiofrequency bone ablation, cryoablation, vertebroplasty, implantable devices, osseous screw fixation and more!
– To gain ample hands-on simulation practice of various interventional procedures on hyper-realistic engineered surgical simulation with real pathology embedded.
– To train and learn under direct supervision of renowned spine interventionists from all over the world
– Opportunity for all participants to practise and fine tune their interventional skills.
– Experts will be available to discuss finer details which will appeal to participants who already perform some of
these procedures in their practice.

*Places are limited on a first-come-first serve basis permitting high delegate to tutor ratios and significant hands-on
practical time.
