 A message from the GSIPP President

Dr. Shevin Pollydore,
GSIPP President
Dear GSIPP Members, It is my pleasure to have been elected as your president for the Georgia Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (GSIPP) at our meeting in the spring of 2015. My predecessor Dr. David Gale has left some big shoes to fill. We have consistently put on some great didactic programs and our program in 2015 was the best since I have been a member of GSIPP. In the session this year I learned that the size of a Radiofrequency Lesion is dependent not only on the size of the needle and its active tip but also on the duration of lesion. This means that if I wanted to make a bigger lesion, I just had to increase the time of lesion and not necessarily use a larger needle. I learned that the latest medical evidence indicates that we may not need to take patients off anti-coagulation for all procedures. I also learned that epidurals may be performed with anesthetic alone in patients whose blood sugar is elevated. These are important pieces of information that I have been able to put into practice since the conference. This is what GSIPP is about. Now what else are we going to do going forward?
