Multidisciplinary Medical Applications

New book documents broad spectrum of treatment options of extracorporeal shock wave therapy

Heilbronn/Germany, 07.10.2014. From angina pectoris to wound healing: “Multidisciplinary Medical Applications” by Heinz Lohrer and Ludger Gerdesmeyer offers a current overview of indications and application areas of extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT).

The book has been published by Level10 and was presented during the international SHOCK WAVE CONFERENCE in Berlin in early October.

Since the early beginnings in urology, the range of applications of extracorporeal shock wave therapy has rapidly increased. Today, practitioners of various medical disciplines use the non-invasive method for the treatment of their patients with great success. The books’ editors Heinz Lohrer and Ludger Gerdesmeyer deliberately do not focus on only one medical discipline or indication. Instead, they use an interdisciplinary approach. Written by experts in their field, the book offers a compilation of articles about the application of extracorporeal shock wave therapy in different medical disciplines, from orthopedics to cardiology, dermatology and neurology. By giving a fascinating overview of the wide range of applications, the book invites readers to look at the bigger picture. “Multidisciplinary Medical Applications” encourages an exchange of ideas and knowledge in order to unlock the full potential of shock wave therapy in the future.
