Accessible, concise, and clinically focused, Essentials of Pain Medicine, 4th Edition, by Drs. Honorio T. Benzon, Srinivasa N. Raja, Scott M. Fishman, Spencer S. Liu, and Steven P. Cohen, presents a complete, full-color overview of today’s theory and practice of pain medicine and regional anesthesia. It provides practical guidance on the full range of today’s pharmacologic, interventional, neuromodulative, physiotherapeutic, and psychological management options for the evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of persons in pain.


"The purpose is to provide a ready to use, comprehensive book on chronic pain management. This fourth edition successfully does that, covering all the topics one needs to know. In this age where everyone is inclined to search a topic online for a quick sound bite, this book is yet more evidence why books are still needed and, more importantly, still need to be read for better patient care." Reviewed by Tariq M. Malik, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
