New York/Stuttgart – A multidisciplinary team of experts have come together to create Spinal Injection Techniques, published by Thieme. This book is a standard-setting reference for spinal injection therapy approached from an orthopedic/trauma surgical point of view. “It is the only book in the English language about spinal injections for the treatment of pain, by an orthopedist,” states author Theodoros Theodoridis, MD.
Developed as a practical guide, Spinal Injection Techniques presents all common methods for the injection of local anesthetics to address pain from the cervical spine to the sacrum. Pain therapy such as causal orthopedic pain therapy, symptomatic pain therapy, and the different injection therapies are described in detail. The information presented by the authors are alternatives to spine surgery.
The book demonstrates safe and effective injection techniques and showcases multiple techniques that are not reliant on diagnostic imaging. Minimally invasive therapy for both inpatient and outpatient treatment are highlighted in the text.
The more than 350 full color illustrations and photographs in the book display relevant anatomy, patient positioning as well as accurate needle placement and also include real-life images taken from the authors' practices.
Spinal Injection Techniques is an invaluable resource for orthopedists and practitioners working in physical medicine and rehabilitation. It is a handy reference for anesthesiologists, neurologists, and rheumatologists with a specific interest in pain therapy for the spine.
