NEW YORK, Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Luis Fandos, MD, anesthesiologist, interventional pain specialist and co-founder of New York Pain Consultants, announced that his practice has been selected as an educational partner with Medtronic, a leading developer of life-changing technologies that improve the way chronic diseases are treated. Beginning in late September the New York Pain Consultants will provide training to medical doctors on the safe and effective use of neurostimulation therapies and intrathecal drug delivery therapies. The goal is to help establish best practice strategies for improved patient care and better long and short term outcomes for each patient.

"My colleagues and I, at New York Pain Consultants, are proud to have been chosen to provide training to doctors interested in the newest medical treatments for pain," stated Dr. Fandos. He continued, "We look forward to sharing the experiences we have with neurostimulation to build clinician competence and expertise." In 2002, Dr. Fandos co-founded New York Pain Consultants with Dr. Craig Shalmi and they have grown the practice to three locations on Long Island.

Dr. Fandos is on staff with the Division of Pain Management at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center, West Islip, New York. He teaches pain management to medical residents from both Samaritan Hospital and the Stony Brook University Medical Center Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. He also serves as the Director of the Division of Pain Management at Southside Hospital in Bay Shore, which is a member of the North Shore-LIJ system.

He is certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology and American Board of Pain Medicine. Dr. Fandos is a member of the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, American Society of Pain Medicine, International Association for the Study of Pain, North American Neuromodulation Society and the World Pain Institute.

The program can be undertaken one-on-one or in a small group with one full day in a clinical setting such as an ambulatory surgical unit. Follow-up readings, discussions and review are undertaken based on the doctor-in-trainings area of specialty and needs. Topics covered will include: patient selection, spinal cord stimulation trial screening, spinal cord implant procedures, pumps trial and implant procedures, physiological assessment, patient outcomes and patient education.
