About this Book

Edited by two leading orthopaedic surgeons specializing in the treatment of haemophilia, and an acclaimed haematologist, Musculoskeletal Aspects of Haemophilia draws together, within a single volume, all the information needed for the practical treatment of the musculoskeletal complications of haemophilia.

A practical 'hands on' guide designed for use on the ward, in the office and at the computer, this book draws on the experience not only of two major centres (Madrid, Spain and London, UK) but also of numerous specialists worldwide. In addition to orthopaedic surgery, it also covers research, rehabilitation and physiotherapy.

While of primary interest to the orthopaedic surgeon, rheumatologist, physiatrist and physiotherapist, this book will also be relevant to the haematologist responsible for the care of the haemophiliac patient.
