Osteoporosis is a growing major public health problem that impacts many women and men. In the US alone, it is estimated that 10 million Americans have osteoporosis and another 34 million have low bone mass. Both of these conditions put patients at increased risk for fracture. This book takes a "generalist" approach to the challenge of osteoporosis. It is aimed at those specialists, in particular gynecologists, who have regular clinical contact with particularly prone populations, such as menopausal and post menopausal women, who do not have the need for in-depth knowledge of the subject.
