The care of pain patients often requires a specialized knowledge base and skill set that goes beyond that of the general management of patients. Interventional Pain Medicine provides comprehensive, point-of-care information for providers of pain therapies in a portable, easy-to-navigate format. With continued advances made on interventions available to treat pain, this book offers up-to-date details and instructions on procedural techniques as well as concise yet informative discussions on anatomy, indications, preparation, and complications. Chapters are clustered into six different sections for easy review: Introduction, Cervical Spinal Injections, Lumbar Spinal Injections, Pelvic and Sacral Injections, Sympathetic Blocks, and Advanced Neuromodulation Interventions. A perfect resource for residents and fellows as well as a ready reference for practitioners, this book thoroughly covers the field of interventional management of pain patients.
