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.
