Praise for the previous edition

“This comprehensive guide with so much good advice will be of much practical value to all who care for lymphedema patients and their difficult problems.” —European Journal of Plastic Surgery

“The third edition of this book is a valuable addition to the limited resources that are available… I believe practicing lymphedema specialists will gravitate to this book and find it accurate and evidence-based, yet less burdensome and less scientifically dense than the alternatives. It will act as a bridge from the classroom to the clinic and become a continuing reference for practice.” – From the Foreword

Lymphedema Management, Third Edition, by Joachim Zuther and Steve Norton, costs $89.99 and is available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and iTunes.
