Reviews

“Comprehensive Treatment of Chronic Pain is a major textbook … . The contributors come from all over the United States, with even some input from Canada, and from a wide variety of specialties. … There are many colored illustrations that greatly add to the understanding, especially of block techniques. … it should be a part of all departmental libraries and in the reference collection of pain fellows and pain practitioners.” (Elizabeth A. M. Frost, Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology, August, 2013)

“This book on the clinical aspects of chronic pain management covers both interventional and noninterventional therapies. … Although the primary audience is chronic pain physicians and primary care givers, anyone managing patients with chronic pain conditions in their practice will find the book very useful. … The information is extremely practical and clinically useful. Chapters on procedures are usually well described … . Both the content and the short discussions in each chapter make it a good pain reference for a busy practice.” (Tariq M. Malik, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2013)
