Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Tariq M. Malik, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is a complete book on pain management that encompasses everything physicians need to know to evaluate and treat pain patients. The chapters are formatted in a very easy-to-read fashion and are well illustrated.
Purpose: This is a complete book on pain management that encompasses everything physicians need to know to evaluate and treat pain patients. The chapters are formatted in a very easy-to-read fashion and are well illustrated.
Audience: The book is written for all pain practitioners, regardless of their background. Pain trainees will find this the only book they need during their training. The author is a well-known authority in the field.
Features: The book is encyclopedic in its coverage of pain. The first of its five sections covers the basic physiology and anatomy of pain, followed by a complete discussion of patient evaluation from history to physical examination to lab investigations. All invasive, noninvasive, structural and functional tests are covered. The next three sections are an extensive discussion of pain syndromes and their treatment. Pain syndromes are divided into those causing pain in one region and those affecting the whole body. The last section is all procedural discussing technical aspects of procedures from indication to complications. The book is thorough, but its size is still manageable. Diseases are covered from a clinical standpoint with a focus on how to diagnose and treat. The information is very practical, and there is no superfluous discussion. The techniques are clearly described in a step-by-step manner. The text is supplemented well with lots of illustrations, diagrams, and tables. Although the pictures at times are simplistic, they convey concepts quite clearly. Since the book is available online with an access code, its accessible 24/7 and does not have to be carried around.
Assessment: This is one of the best books available on pain management. It's simple, complete, and well written. The second edition adds more than 10 new chapters to make it current. This is the only book one needs to buy while in training or for staying up to date in practice.
