Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book is divided into nine parts covering all aspects of a pain management. The book covers the subject broadly and chapters touch on alternative forms of treatment such as acupuncture as well as the psychosocial and psychological aspects of pain. … References are up to date and comprehensive. Overall an excellent book for those contemplating going into or already performing the practice of pain management.” (American Journal of Neuroradiology, January, 2012)

“The book is exemplary in many respects. … explores accepted and evolving strategies for pain treatment. … The engaging and practical case scenarios at the end of each chapter carefully guide the reader through various clinical decision points. … Essentials of Pain Management is an outstanding resource that would be useful to clinicians seeking a broad understanding of pain and its evolving treatment strategies and controversies. It covers a wide array of topics, including some not always found in traditional textbooks on pain.” (Devi E. Nampiaparampil, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 306 (1), July, 2011)

“This comprehensive and up-to-date book on acute and chronic pain management includes case scenarios at the end of chapters to bring the topics to life. … All physicians who manage patients in pain can benefit. … the book is specifically meant for pain physicians, all anesthesiologists will find it helpful in their day-to-day practice. … it useful for any level of trainee. … No book on the market rivals this one in its usefulness to trainees in anesthesia doing pain rotations or pain fellowships.” (Tariq M. Malik, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2011)
