“Having an ASPN track at PAINWeek is a natural evolution as both groups are heavily interested in alleviating chronic pain complaints through use of methods that are nonpharmacological in nature.”

“ASPN is a unique and new professional society developed to harness the talents of a diverse group of interventional pain physicians through the pursuit of clinical excellence, education, research, and innovation. The collaboration of PAINWeek and ASPN will further advance pain medicine by embracing interventional treatment options to alleviate chronic pain and suffering.”
