Orthopods Are Dealing With Osteoporosis

This week I spent 2 days advising Orthopedic Surgeons about how to deal with Osteoporotic patients.  Identifying the Osteoporotic (Fragility) Fracture is the easy part.  Correcting the Osteoporosis is more challenging.

Orthopods are often too busy treating the recent fracture to do a complete work-up and initiate correction of the Osteoporosis.  Unfortunately, many pimary care docs are also too busy treating (now out of control because of the fracture) diabetes, hypertension, heart failure, pulmonary problems, etc in the weeks after a fracture.  Setting up a system is key to getting a complete bone health evaluation and treatment before everyone, patient included, forgets to try to prevent further fractures.
