Pain Medicine: An Essential Review

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.

    Great review book. I am pain physician and an anesthesiologist by training. I have been in practice 4 years now. I used to use the Faust Anesthesia Review textbook when I was an anesthesia resident. This book has a similar style with very short (2-3 page) high-yield chapters that are easy to flip to and review. I am using it at least 3 times per week and it is great. Would recommend this to any Pain Fellow and Attending, or any anesthesia resident interested in pain.

    I have reviewed almost every pain book possible during the course of residency/fellowship/practice. This is by far the most COMPLETE while being extremely CONCISE. It reads more like a POCKET BOOK, which is more useful in real practice because when you’re preparing for a procedure or want to review a specific medication, you don’t want endless pages on it. You want what’s truly relevant. Has some pretty nice pictures and fluoro images. Now that I’m in practice, the interventional procedures portion has become a great resource. Would recommend pairing with a good atlas. A lot of useful basic pain physiology, anatomy, assessment stuff for fellows as well.

    This is an excellent text for any trainee or practicing clinician. Chapters are comprehensive, to the point, and full of clinical pearls. The book is also an ideal reference for pain medicine fellows studying for the boards. As the name suggests, it is an “essential” resource, and it will remain on my desk.
