Welcome to IX SIMPAR-ISURA 2017

In March 2017 a unique event will take place in the wonderful city of Florence – Italy.

Two international and well known meetings will join together in order to give a unique opportunity to all attendants to build their own and personalized meeting experience choosing the most updated talks about perioperative care and chronic pain. Hence, this meeting is the only place where each attendants can choose each day a wide array of topics and combine them together to create her/his best personalized program to deepen exactly what she/he needs.

SIMPAR (Study In Multidisciplinary PAin Research) is the first bench to bedside meeting where a real translational approach let attendants to understand how to change clinical and daily activity. In the last edition (VIII SIMPAR in Rome) more than 500 attendants from 30 different countries have joined the meeting with wonderful feedbacks

ISURA (International Symposium of Ultrasound for Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine) is the first large meeting completely dedicated to the application of ultrasound for regional anesthesia and pain medicine. It will be the 14th year in Florence in 2017. The tradition is that the event will alternate between Toronto and a beautiful European city.

Hence, SIMPAR-ISURA is not a meeting but the only place where basic scientists and clinicians with different expertise can discuss and exchange their experience and new findings and refine their expertise in ultrasound. This is also the place where You can meet clinicans of different specialties involved in the understanding and management of acute and/or chronic pain. Hence, we provide you a unique experience: SIMPAR and ISURA together- two meetings in one beautiful city of Florence - Italy. A wonderful occasion for scientists, clinicians and stakeholders to have a spectacular venue to meet and network with people for new ideas to help our professional venture.

We are looking forward to seeing You in Florence! We hope that You will join with us the unique SIMPAR-ISURA atmosphere!
