Electrodiagnosis (EMGs) / Joint Injections / Botox injections / Interventional Spine Procedures
Residents are expected to perform over 200 EMGs in a three year period. Most of our residents document over 300 EMGs in their 3 years.
Residents are trained to perform botulinum and phenol injections in both adult and pediatric populations. Interventional spinal injection training and pain management is incorporated in the KU Medical Center and the Kansas City VA rotations. Additionally, during various outpatient musculoskeletal rotations residents will be fluent in intra-articular injections of the extremities. Residents may choose to do their outpatient continuity clinic in one of these clinics to further their procedural skills.
