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.

                               Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology
