Dr. Glaser, president ISIPP, presided over the 2nd annual Illinois Society of Interventional Pain Physicians meeting held on January 19th which was a rousing success. 60 ISIPP members enjoyed good food and camaraderie at Harry Caray’s restaurant in downtown Chicago on a cold winter evening. They were treated to provocative and informative lectures by Dr. Gabor Racz and Dr. Joseph Fortin. Dr. Racz presented his thoughts on reducing the risks of interventional treatment, specifically interlaminar and transformational injections as well as epidural adhesiolysis procedures. The attendees were riveted by Dr. Racz as he recounted complications of interventional treatment that he was aware of. Dr. Fortin gave a well received lecture on biomechanics of the lumbar spine with an impressive audiovisual presentation. The audience gained an appreciation of the causes of injury to the spine well as the logic behind the rehabilitative process. The audience was truly multispecialty in nature comprised of physicians from a physiatric and anesthesiology background, nurses, physician assistants, radiology technicians, and physical therapists.
