Historically osteoporosis has been treated by surgical intervention, however, with the increased awareness of the role of oestrogen in bone loss during the menopause and the availability of hormone replacement therapy, the treatment strategy has become one of prevention. The shift in understanding of the disease as well as the availability of new treatments has meant that gynaecologists and endocrinologists together with rheumatologists are now involved in the diagnosis of osteoporosis. This has created a need for not only a clear definition of osteoporosis, but also a comprehensive reference on the disease. This book is aimed to combat low understanding of epidemiology of the disease among clinicians.
