Fundamentals of Pain Medicine – Hoppenfeld
improve the quality of life of their patients. Pain is ubiquitous and presents itself in the practices of every doctor. Whether your practice is primary care, general surgery, or a specialty, you have patients with pain. No matter how diferent our practices may be, we all have patients who need better pain management. This book will present the basics of pain management, currently not a mainstay of medical school curricula or most residency training programs. The principles provided here will give you the tools to understand, work up, and alleviate your patient’s pain.

Multiple case examples are provided to make the book relevant and applicable. This book by no means is comprehensive; however, its purpose is to cover the most common causes of pain, those you will encounter frequently in your practice, and the most common treatment options. You will understand when and how to use pain medications as well as when a patient can benefit from a procedure.
Some patients present with a primary complaint of pain while others complain of pain secondary to a more generalized disease process or procedure. As a healthcare professional, you are trained to diagnose the pathology and then treat it. However, another layer of patient care needs more focus in the medical community. Our actions to alleviate pain will not hinder our ability to treat the underlying disease.
