About this book


Written and edited by the foremost practitioners of neurolysis, this completely revised and updated second edition assembles the current methods of neurolytic procedures into a single volume.  The book explains in great detail trigeminal and radiofrequency techniques, facet joint denervation, cryoneurolysis and lumbosacral, thoracic and cervical neuroplasty. The new concept of the scarring triangle and treatment that may prevent surgical failures is proposed. Neuroaugmentation and complimentary procedures are also covered.  Indications, contraindications, and complications of these treatments are discussed along with outcomes on some of the case studies featured in the first edition.  Interventional pain physicians, as well as palliative pain physicians, neurosurgeons, and orthopedic spine surgeons, will find this text to be the definitive reference on neurolysis in clinical practice.
