Overview

Now in its Fourth Edition, with a brand-new editorial team, Bonica's Management of Pain will be the leading textbook and clinical reference in the field of pain medicine. An international group of the foremost experts provides comprehensive, current, clinically oriented coverage of the entire field. The contributors describe contemporary clinical practice and summarize the evidence that guides clinical practice.

The first section covers basic considerations, including mechanisms of nociception, functional neuroanatomy and musculoskeletal anatomy, psychological aspects of pain, cultural and environmental aspects of pain, and clinical trials. The second section addresses economic, political, legal, and ethical considerations in pain management. The third section describes current methods for evaluation of the patient with pain. The fourth section provides in-depth coverage of specific painful conditions—neuropathic pain syndromes, psychological contributions to pain, vascular, cutaneous, and musculoskeletal pains, pain due to cancer, acute pain, pain in special populations, visceral pain, regional pain, and low back pain. The fifth section describes the full range of methods for symptomatic control, including pharmacologic therapies, psychological techniques, physical and other noninterventional therapies, implanted electrical stimulators, interventional pain management, and surgical approaches. The book concludes with discussions of the provision of pain treatment in a variety of clinical settings, including pain clinics, spine clinics, the primary care setting, the emergency department, the intensive care unit, and end-of-life care.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Tariq M. Malik, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This comprehensive review of acute and chronic pain management covers every clinical pain topic and comes with access to an online version. The fourth edition is necessary to keep the book relevant and up to date with the advances in the field since the 2000 edition.
Purpose: It covers every aspect of pain management from injection therapies to medications to other modalities. It is practically an encyclopedia of pain knowledge.
Audience: There is something for everyone in this book, even physicians who are not pain specialists. In fact, primary care physicians will find it helpful to gain a much deeper understanding of pain management and its limitations.
Features: The book is broadly divided into six parts. The first part explores the history of pain, pain physiology and anatomy, and the role of genetics and psychology in pain. Part two, a new addition, covers the medicolegal aspects of pain, particularly the litigation that can come with prescribing controlled substances and performing injection therapies. Part three details the clinical and social evaluation of patients, including disability evaluation. Part four covers the different pain conditions, including neuropathic pain syndromes, musculoskeletal pain, cancer pain, pain in the elderly and children, visceral pain, and low back pain, which gets a whole section to itself. Part five evaluates the pharmacology of drugs used in pain, injection therapies, psychological interventions, and surgical options. The final part covers the provision of pain treatment. The book is well written and the chapters are short and easy to read. The information is practical and clinically useful. All chapters have a similar format: an introduction to the problem, its prevalence, pathophysiology, diagnostic criteria, and management. The management discussion covers all options, including whether they are clinically proven to be effective. Recommendations are forthright and clear cut.
Assessment: This book is a pure joy to read. It is an objective and authoritative account of pain management that stresses a multimodal approach rather than a narrow focus on injection therapies and drugs. It has very useful information on caring for chronic pain patients, a subject often lacking in many other pain books. The book has once again proven itself as the standard textbook of pain for pain specialists.
