Pediatric Rehabilitation is an important component of both Physiatry and Pediatrics. Given the potential survival time of the patient and the enormous emotional, social, and economic costs involved, the rehabilitation management of children is one of the most important areas of both specialties. This book will be the definitive text reference on this important area and is a great addition to Hanley and Belfuss impressive program of books in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
Drs. Molnar and Alexander have made a classic reference better than ever in this completely revised and updated work. Some of the major names in the field have contributed comprehensive yet highly practical chapters.
