Starting from 2017, the STREAM conference has attracted minimally invasive specialists seeking practical education and training. While the conference originally revolved around prostate artery embolization, it has since expanded to include topics such as genicular artery embolization, peripheral artery disease, and musculoskeletal interventions.
Drs. Isaacson and Bagla highlight the wide variety of speakers, which include urologists, orthopedic surgeons, and medical malpractice lawyers. They both emphasize that this dynamic conference responds to the audience’s interests and has an overall laid-back atmosphere. This year will also be the first one to feature a case competition for students and residents. Click the link below to register for the conference and apply the BackTable promotional code!
