This book serves as a practical resource for pain medicine providers. It presents important clinical concepts while covering critical pain medicine fundamentals. Chapters were carefully chosen to cover common aspects of clinical pain medicine and also follow a common format to facilitate quick look-up. Each chapter includes a concise discussion of the latest supporting evidence as well as relevant case scenarios. The coverage is clinically and board relevant, evidence-based and up-to-date. It will appeal to residents preparing for the written board examination and practitioners preparing for board re-certification, which now occurs every 10 years. Beyond these groups, the book has the potential to appeal to learners and practitioners around the world; pain medicine is burgeoning globally, and there is great need for concise, clinically relevant resources.
"This book will serve as a great resource to practicing pain physicians and as a quick reference guide to physicians who may practice rudimentary pain management. The text is easy to read, and the book is divided into 12 well-defined parts for quick reference. ? this book does cover common aspects of pain and will serve as a valuable review text for anyone preparing for written board exams or involved in the recertification process." (W. Scott Jellish, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol. 126 (5), May, 2018)
"The purpose is to provide a one-stop source of information for everything one needs to know when doing a pain fellowship. ? Although the primary audience is pain fellows in training, the book covers enough topics that even experienced pain physicians would find it useful. ? this is a good attempt at bringing sanity to the field of pain management, which has expanded in so many directions that every book is struggling to hold it together just to stay relevant." (Tariq M. Malik, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2017)
