This must-have resource presents an encyclopedic, yet focused visual survey
of pain medicine, with a strong emphasis on procedural technique and safety.
Throughout, you'll find detailed, evidence-based guidance on more than 70 pain
medicine procedures--all supported by an illustrated presentation that includes
950 figures (many in full color). Chapters are consistently designed--covering
indications, procedural steps, and complications--with the text presented in
a succinct, bulleted style.
Atlas of Pain Medicine Procedures begins with an incisive review of basic applications such as safety and image guidance and then proceeds to core procedures, from spinal interventions and musculoskeletal injections to peripheral nerve blocks. The book also offers in-depth insights on ultrasound guidance as well as fluoroscopic guidance of procedures. The evidence-based focus ensures that the procedures and techniques discussed are grounded in the peer-reviewed medical literature and the very latest pain medicine perspectives.
