Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Tariq M. Malik, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: Dedicated to the evaluation and management of discogenic pain, this book covers all aspects of disc degeneration, the most common etiology of discogenic pain, and reviews the latest techniques and emerging trends in its management. The contents are also available online, making the book accessible 24/7 anywhere it is needed.
Purpose: As part of a series focused on interventional pain management techniques, this book aims to provide a complete and up-to-date account of the pathophysiology and treatment of discogenic pain. This is a worthy objective, since this is not only the most common back pain, but also the most perplexing and hardest to manage.
Audience: The audience is clinicians who practice pain management. All clinicians who want to update their knowledge of discogenic pain management can benefit from this book, which includes contributions from authors who are pioneers in the field.
Features: Rarely is a book so complete and comprehensive. Its 13 chapters are logically organized, beginning with two chapters dedicated to the pathophysiology and epidemiology of pain. The next three chapters focus on evaluation and diagnostic aspects, extensively covering imaging and discography. The remaining eight chapters cover different minimally invasive techniques, surgical options, and neuromodulatory techniques for discogenic pain management. The book maintains the format that has been hallmark of the series. Each chapter is brief, clear, and to the point, and includes an outline of the content and salient features. Very clear guidelines are provided when discussing management options, and the text is complemented by lots of illustrations. The three videos available online surprisingly are not as helpful as the book. The book does not dwell on the procedural aspect of the techniques; it does not describe how to perform different techniques in a step-by-step fashion.
Assessment: This is an authoritative and well referenced book on interventional pain management for discogenic pain. It lacks procedural details, but provides an evidence-based review of the current and future techniques for disc pain management. It is a must read for all pain fellows and interventional pain practitioners.
