Osteoporosis is a widespread disorder with significant worldwide health and economic impact. In the second edition of the highly successful Osteoporosis: Pathophysiology and Clinical Management, new editor Robert A. Adler, MD, uses the same approach as the first edition, pairing a chapter on the basic science of a disorder followed by a chapter on its clinical aspects. Updated and expanded, this second edition includes many new chapters reflecting the growing literature on osteoporosis. New topics cover such areas as methods of bone imaging, screening for osteoporosis, adherence to therapy, and even a novel and exciting chapter on osteoporosis in men, to name just several. In Osteoporosis: Pathophysiology and Clinical Management, Second Edition, leading experts in a variety of fields have once again provided a wealth of invaluable, state-of-the-art information to illuminate the major scientific and clinical aspects of osteoporosis.
