About this book

Primum non nocere… The fact that a surgical procedure can leave any kind of pain casts a shadow over this tenet, which is seen as the basis of medical practice and anchor of its principle ethic…

It is all the more surprising in that medicine has only paid attention to this paradoxical chronic pain situation for the past few years. Clarifying the knowledge acquired in this field has become all the more urgent for any care-giver today confronted by a legitimate request from patients: Why and how can a surgical procedure, which is supposed to bring relief, leave behind an unacceptable sequela?

This is the approach which the contributors to this new subject of major clinical interest invite you to follow as you work your way through this book.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“Chronic Postsurgical Pain, a first edition edited by G. Mick and V. Guastella, is a thorough … review of the risk factors, evaluation, and preventative strategies for chronic pain resulting from surgical intervention. … the anesthesiologist whose focus is on patient-centred postsurgical pain would appreciate reading this book and possibly gain new insight into some research being performed in this field.” (Ronald B. George, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia/Journal canadien d'anesthésie, Vol. 61, 2014)

“The purpose is to highlight the silent epidemic of chronic postsurgical pain and provide some evidence-based guidelines for its management. These worthy objectives are thoroughly met. … Although the book is intended for chronic pain physicians, anyone who treats such patients, like primary care physicians, would find it very helpful. … a good read for surgeons who often find it hard to believe how prevalent this condition is. … This is the only book wholly dedicated to chronic postsurgical pain.” (Tariq M. Malik, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2014)
