Description

A comprehensive reference for collaborative osteoporosis prevention and care Traditionally considered an orthopedic disease, osteoporosis is now associated with estrogen loss during menopause; while treatment may be surgical, prevention has become a collaboration of gynecologists, endocrinologists, and rheumatologists. The Textbook of Osteoporosis provides a comprehensive reference on the disease and its epidemiology, causes, treatments, and prevention strategies. As our understanding grows, it becomes more critical them ever for physicians outside the orthopedic specialty to stay up to date with the latest knowledge.
