Upcoming Educational Webinars

High-Frequency Spinal Cord Stimulation for Painful Diabetic Neuropathy

Friday, 3 February 2023

Friday, 3 February 2023

09.00 PST • 10.00 CST • 11.00 EST • 16.00 GMT • 17.00 CET • 01.00 JST (4 Feb) • 03.00 AEDT (4 Feb)

New advances in high-frequency spinal cord stimulation (SCS) are emerging for the use of painful diabetic neuropathy (PDN). Led by Dr. Erika Peterson, these studies are showing promise as a new approach for patients suffering from painful diabetic neuropathy. Dr. Petersen will present her research efforts using high-frequency stimulation in clinical trials to provide pain relief and improved health-related quality of life. This research suggests that SCS can safely and effectively aid patients with refractory PDN.

Erika Petersen, MD, FAANS, FACS, Department of Neurosurgery, directs the Section of Functional and Restorative Neurosurgery at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. She is a Professor in the Department of Neurosurgery at UAMS and directs the neurosurgery residency program. Dr. Petersen is a board-certified neurosurgeon whose clinical practice focuses on neuromodulation, treating movement disorders, spasticity, and chronic pain through surgical procedures and stereotactic radiosurgery. Her research focuses on developing new devices, indications, and methods for treating chronic pain using deep brain stimulation and neuromodulation. Dr. Petersen attended Princeton University and received her medical degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She trained in neurosurgery at the University of Texas Southwestern with a fellowship in deep brain stimulation at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London. She has authored numerous articles and book chapters on stereotactic and functional neurosurgery and neuroscience.
