About this book

Comprehensive, thoroughly updated, and expanded, Neuromuscular Disorders in Clinical Practice, Second Edition encompasses all disorders of the peripheral nervous system, covering all aspects of neuromuscular diseases from diagnosis to treatment.  Mirroring the first book, this two-volume edition is divided into two parts.  Part one discusses the approach to neuromuscular disorders, covering principles and basics, neuromuscular investigations, and assessment and treatment of neurological disorders.  Part two then addresses the complete range of specific neuromuscular diseases: neuronopathies, peripheral neuropathies, neuromuscular junction disorders, muscle ion channel disorders, myopathies, and miscellaneous neuromuscular disorders and syndromes.  Neuromuscular Disorders in Clinical Practice, Second Edition is intended to serve as a comprehensive text for both novice and experienced practitioners.  General neurologists as well as specialists in neuromuscular medicine and trainees in neuromuscular medicine, clinical neurophysiology and electromyography should find this book inclusive, comprehensive, practical and highly clinically focused.  Additionally, specialists in physical medicine and rehabilitation, rheumatology, neurosurgery, and orthopedics will find the book of great value in their practice.

Reviews

“This is a 1500 page atlas and textbook concerning sensory, motor, and sensorimotor diseases & disorders. … There are plentiful color illustrations, clinical photographs, tables, lists, differential diagnoses, & line drawings. I recommend this to pain and muscle physiologists, neurologists, and other personnel in the sensory-motor fields. This is meant as an advanced reference. The book covers all the areas in neuromuscular diseases.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, June, 2016)

“A very comprehensive and updated textbook reviews in extenso all disorders of the peripheral nervous system. Written by internationally known experts in neurology, the book also contains chapters by geneticists, basic researchers, the majority from the US. … Highly recommended not only to neurologists.” (Zvi Laron, Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews (PER), Vol. 12 (1), September, 2014)
