About this book


Edited by two leading orthopedic surgeons who are specialists in the treatment of hemophilia, Orthopedic Surgery in Patients with Hemophilia shows all the surgical techniques needed for surgical treatment of musculoskeletal complications of hemophilia. A practical guide, designed for use on the ward or in the office, this book draws on the experience of numerous specialists worldwide, from developed and developing countries. As well as orthopedic surgery, it also covers research, hematology, and rehabilitation. Although of primary interest to the orthopedic surgeon, rheumatologist, and physiotherapist, this book will also be relevant to the hematologist responsible for the care of the hemophiliac patient.
