More About This Textbook


Dr. Michael Foldi, professor and internationally renowned expert in the field of lymphology -- together with his co-editors and contributing authors -- unlocks the complex world of lymphological science for physicians and lymphedema therapists alike. Through its breadth and depth of information, the authors successfully bridge the gap between the pre-clinical environment and the functions of the clinician/physician or physiotherapist. The clear color layout and 700 impressive illustrations facilitate access to this special field. Based on the successful German textbook, originally published a decade ago and now already in its 5th edition, the English edition has been updated to reflect the latest knowledge in the field of lymphology.
