A single-volume, comprehensive review of the entire field of neurosurgical pain management. It is a professional tool examining all current concepts of pain neuroanatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology; new procedures that minimize invasiveness and postoperative neurological deficiencies; and the entire scope of surgical and medical management of pain. Special features include: special considerations - highlighting key clinical information for everyday practical use; point/counterpoint - giving the pros and cons of different treatment methods; and each chapter authored by a prominent expert, followed by a critique from an authority with a different perspective and opinion; special sections on the analysis, assessment, and nonsurgical treatment of pain. Each chapter is authored by a distinguished specialist in that area, and also includes commentary on the technique under discussion. In that way, you get the balanced presentation of issues that is so critical for effective decision-making in individual cases. "Surgical Management of Pain" is aimed at all pain specialists, neurosurgeons, anaesthesiologists, neurologists, and all physicians involved in the treatment of pain.
