In Reply: Dr Hendler notes that I was disappointed
that some essential chapters from the previous edition of this book were omitted,
including those on low back pain, neuropathic pain, diagnostic imaging, emergency
department pain management, acute postoperative pain, and pain-related sexual
dysfunction. Neuropathic pain is, in fact, addressed in a distinct chapter.
The other topics mentioned above do not have their own separate chapters in
this edition, which, in my opinion, was an unfortunate evolution.
