Main Description
Written exclusively from a neurosurgical perspective, this title is a concise and practical resource, yet covers a large information base from Myofascial Pain Syndromes to Peripheral Ablative Techniques. Organized into four sections: Fundamental Considerations in Pain Treatment, Pain Syndromes of Neurosurgical Importance, Neurosurgical Pain Therapies, and Miscellaneous Topics (which includes Physical Medicine and Rehabilitaion, Disability and Impairment in the Patient, and more). Offers a multidisciplinary perspective with contributions from neurosurgeons, anesthesiologists, and pain specialists. Compares and contrasts treatment approaches to highlight their relative advantages, disadvantages, and indications. Includes chapters on a multidisciplinary treatment program and how to build (and survive) a neurosurgical pain practice. With 40 additional contributing experts
