You can reduce the risk of your patients suffering an
osteoporosis-related fracture.

Osteoporosis is a highly prevalent, treatable disease, but it is currently
incurable. Successful early diagnosis can lead to effective treatment
strategies that reduce the risk of a patient?s life being compromised by
serious fracture injury.

In Osteoporosis, Dr Dale Stovall has assembled world-leading experts who
guide you through modern best-practice approaches to:

? Diagnosis of osteoporosis
? Risk assessment for fractures
? Use of calcium and vitamin D
? Medical therapy and follow up
? Future approaches to treatment

Osteoporosis empowers you to identify and treat your patients with
osteoporosis and low bone mass, preventing subsequent fractures and
improving their quality of life.
