Reviews

“This is a comprehensive book of interventional techniques commonly used to treat chronic pain conditions. It is well illustrated and, best of all, it makes an honest attempt to provide strength of evidence for each intervention. … This is one of a number of books on interventional techniques, but none focuses on anatomy as much as this one does and none include the level of evidence for each procedure. This alone makes this book worth buying and reading.” (Tariq M. Malik, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2018)
