Effective pain management requires increasingly specialized knowledge.

Multidisciplinary information is required if you intend to practice pain management at a high level of effectiveness. This includes anatomy and physiology, pain syndromes, diagnosis and management, and the correct use of interventional techniques.

Pain-Relieving Procedures: The Illustrated Guide provides you with a step-by-step guide to interventional techniques underpinned by a solid multidisciplinary knowledge base. The text is enhanced by the wide use of illustrations, including amazing color 3D-CT images that enable you to easily visualize anatomy.

A special chapter covers more advanced techniques such as continuous analgesia, spinal cord and sacral stimulation, vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty. 

Each procedure is described using a template that includes anatomy, indications, contraindications, technique and complications. Helpful hints throughout will help you refine your practice to achieve better results. 

Concise, straightforward, and indispensable, Pain-Relieving Procedures: The Illustrated Guide provides the most effective interventional methods for those practicing pain management.
