With an increase in the longevity of the global population, care of the functional, cognitive, and physical health of older adults is essential. There has been a dramatic demographic shift toward a growing aging population and an increase in osteoporotic fractures that has occurred over the last few decades especially in Western countries. This clearly demonstrates the need for a comprehensive approach to treating fragility fractures by surgeons, geriatricians, and care staff.

Osteoporotic Fracture Care is the first book of its kind to offer a well-rounded and comprehensive resource on fragility fractures and orthogeriatric care designed to help new and experienced surgeons, geriatricians, physicians, and care personnel to better work together and develop interprofessional and interdisciplinary systems so as to treat patients more effectively.

The book contains 44 chapters and is divided into three sections: "Principles", "Improving the system of care", and "Fracture management". The book's key features are:

  • In-depth insight into the needs of older adults and how to best improve patient care, patient outcome, and reduce system costs
  • Twenty detailed and illustrative case-based chapters giving the reader a wide array of options to improve patient care and outcomes
  • More than 1,000 high-quality x-rays, clinical images, and illustrations
