Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A highly practical and very user friendly text…An excellent resource for the pain practitioner in need of a reference to review common pain syndromes as well as a rational approach to their diagnosis and treatment. It should find its way onto the bookshelf of most pain medicine clinics and certainly all pain medicine training programs, regardless of specialty orientation."—Anesthesia and Analgesia, review of the previous edition

"The book is well suited for physicians in busy practices who want to quickly look up common causes of pain. It provides visual clues and helps make the process of diagnosis quicker. The updates in this edition make it more relevant."
- Doody Enterprises, Inc.

From The Critics
Reviewer: Louis G. Salib, MD (University of Chicago)
Description: This very attractive and interesting presentation of common pain problems provides an easy diagnostic and therapeutic tool for each case. The Clinical Pearls paragraph is a great summary for each chapter. The color pictures, which represent the diagnostic symptom or sign, are beautiful and self-explanatory.
Purpose: "According to the author, the purpose of this book is to fill the gap in the diagnosis of painful conditions, which is needed to help round out the skills sets of the various specialties who are now involved in the treatment of pain. These worthy objectives are met and the book is needed. "
Audience: "According to the author, the book is written for all specialists who are now involved in the treatment of pain. In my judgement, it is written for pain clinicians, physiatrists, orthopedists, rheumatologists, and neurologists. The author is a professor of clinical anesthesiology and the director of a recognized pain program, so he is a credible authority in the subject matter of the book. "
Features: "The book covers different pain syndromes according to the region of the body affected. That coverage includes the etiology, diagnosis, and management of each syndrome. A short summary is included that focuses on the important facts. A strength of the book is the easy followup and the beautiful illustrations, especially those that represent the diagnostic symptom or sign of each syndrome. The color art is very attractive and clear. I did not see any shortcomings. "
Assessment: "This is an extremely wonderful addition to the library of every pain clinician. It can help significantly in the proper management of different pain syndromes. It is a first edition and covers areas not covered very well in other books. "
