Peripheral Neuropathies in Clinical Practice 1e Edition
The last 2 decades have seen enormous strides in our understanding of the biological, genetic and clinical basis of the peripheral nerve disorders. This remains a difficult area for most practitioners. This text combines a thorough review of the neurologic literature with clinical experience in presenting a comprehensive yet concise and readable approach to the understanding, evaluation and management of these disorders. All practitioners seeing these patients, as well as all trainees in Neurology and related fields, should find this a useful, approachable initial resource.
“Peripheral Neuropathies in Clinical Practice is well written, up-to-date, and well illustrated, providing a logical and comprehensive approach to peripheral nerve diseases. Any clinician would be able to use it to find specific facts as well as understand how to approach a category of disorders. Therefore, this book would prove useful to any practitioner or practitioner-in-training who would want an easily accessible and comprehensive textbook on peripheral neuropathy. I strongly recommend this textbook as a reference work as well as a clinical manual, because it contains all of the information necessary for the physician treating patients who have peripheral nerve disease.” –Daniel L. Menkes, MD, JAMA
