About this book

Osteoporosis is indeed a global threat because every human being is vulnerable and subject to it as time goes by. The authors point out the enormous scale of the problem in terms of human suffering, morbidity and mortality on the one hand and the astronomical national costs on the other. The book is up-beat and optimistic with a touch of humour; it is scientifically based but provides easy-to-follow guidelines for lifelong maintenance of skeletal structure and function. Osteoporosis is preventable, if doctors want to, and every doctor can contribute. Bone is every doctor's and every body's business.

Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:

"This book treats in 23 chapters all aspects of osteoporosis, including epidemiology, risk factors, physiology, diagnosis, therapy, and prevention. … Osteoporosis in children, often unrecognized, is discussed in a separate chapter. … This book is a pleasure to read and should be recommended to every orthopaedic surgeon interested in the subject." (L. Fabeck, Acta Orthopaedica Belgica, Vol. 70(4), 2004)

"This work … constitutes an incomparable tool to acquire knowledge necessary on this problem of public health, which osteoporosis constitutes. … The format of this book and its typography are extremely pleasant … . All things considered, it is a book that covers fully all aspects of a serious problem. … To be put in the hands of all orthopedic surgeons." (Michel P. Philippe, European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology, Vol. 14 (4), 2004)
