About this book


From reviews of Deer, eds., Comprehensive Treatment of Chronic Pain by Medical, Interventional, and Integrative Approaches:

"Comprehensive Treatment of Chronic Pain by Medical, Interventional, and Integrative Approaches is a major textbook...
[I]t should be a part of all departmental libraries and in the reference collection of pain fellows and pain practitioners.  In fact, this text could be to pain as Miller is to general anesthesia.
