Overview

By 2020, half of all Americans over 50 will be at risk for fractures from osteoporosis and low bone mass if immediate action is not taken. According to a report from the U.S. Surgeon General, 10 million Americans over the age of 50 have osteoporosis while another 34 million are at risk for developing osteoporosis. Paget's disease, osteogenesis imperfecta, and other bone and mineral disorders are less common but can be even more devastating to their victims leading to a downward spiral in physical health and quality of life. Medical practitioners need quick access to information on these disorders in order to help patients and their families. The Bone and Mineral Manual, 2e is designed specifically for this purpose.

Key Features
• Includes downloadable material for PDAs
• Ideal for practicing physicians, residents, and students
• Addresses problems likely to be seen at all ages from pre-term infant to the centenarian
• Provides quick reference of current bone and mineral metabolism methods
• Presents information in a concise format rather than lengthy text
• Enables immediate diagnosis and treatment of bone and mineral disorders

Praise for the first edition:
"This is a welcome addition to the quick and easy reference material for a busy clinician. It is particularly useful as the editors cover the newest advances in this rapidly changing field and they also give an authoritative overview of less common diseases."
