Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: E. Quinn Regan, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This the second edition of an extensive review and reference for the approach to patients with low back pain.
Purpose: The text is a useful and practical guide to the diagnosis and management of patients with low back pain. The book will help the practitioner determine the etiology of back pain and guide the medical management.
Audience: The book is primarily aimed at physicians who medically manage low back pain. However, any spine surgeon would also benefit from this book as an overview of nonoperative approaches for patient management.
Features: The book starts with a good description of the anatomy and physiology of back pain. It then goes through a comprehensive clinical evaluation of the patient with back pain. An algorithm and a protocol for patient management are also presented. The next 400 pages discuss the numerous medical diagnoses of low back pain, and the book ends with the therapeutic options for patients with low back pain.
Assessment: This is an excellent comprehensive text of the medical approach to patients with low back pain.
