Reviews

“The intended audience is physicians committed to treating pain patients in an optimal fashion. Although medical students or residents in anesthesia may find this book useful as reference, it probably is most appropriate for the libraries of fellows in pain management and pain physicians interested in a procedural approach to the pain patient in the context of a multidisciplinary setting.” (Paul D Ware, Doody's Book Reviews, November 08, 2019)
