Hi drusso, ligament, stinkytofu, etc.: I was wondering if you could compare the differences and similarities between "pain" and "spine" fellowships, specifically: 1. What procedures are tought and to what extent? 2. What type of outpatient practice does each lend itself to? The reason for this is that I recently talked to an interventional physiatrist (via email) who works for a large HMO in Northern California and this doctor told me that he would recommend a "spine" fellowship which teaches lots of interventional procedures and better prepares a PM & R grad for what s/he will likely see during their practcie. Thanks for any help.
