Neurosurgical Management of Pain presents the full range of procedures for the management of chronic, intractable pain. Criteria for patient selection, the details of operative techniques, risks, complications, and expected outcomes are offered for a wide variety of anatomic, ablative, and augmentative neurosurgical procedures for the treatment of pain. Chapters on the latest neuroaugmentative advances utilizing electrical stimulation and implantable drug infusion systems are included as well as a useful section providing algorithms and guidelines for evaluation and treatment of specific pain syndromes. Over 100 exquisite line drawings and photographs augment the text. For both the trainee and experienced neurosurgeon, this volume is invaluable for acquiring the critical judgement and clinical skills necessary to apply these procedures.
