Snow, B. R. (1985). The Use of Hypnosis in the Management of Preoperative Anxiety and Postoperative Pain in a Patient Undergoing Laminectomy. Bulletin of the Hospital for Joint Diseases Orthopaedic Institute, Vol. 45, 143-9.

Patients undergoing laminectomy face a variety of concerns both pre- and postoperatively which may affect their emotional state and increase surgical risk. A case study of a laminectomy patient who was taught hypnosis for the control of preoperative anxiety and postoperative pain is presented. The benefits of such hypnotic intervention, as well as the long-term effects of hypnotic intervention on a patient who is in a crisis period are discussed.
