9780123746023: Osteoporosis in Men, Second Edition: The Effects of Gender on Skeletal Health

Since the publication of the first edition, the U.S. Surgeon General released the first-ever report on bone health and osteoporosis in October 2004. This report focuses even more attention on the devastating impact osteoporosis has on millions of lives. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, 2 million American men have osteoporosis, and another 12 million are at risk for this disease. Yet despite the large number of men affected, the lack of awareness by doctors and their patients puts men at a higher risk that the condition may go undiagnosed and untreated. It is estimated that one-fifth to one-third of all hip fractures occur in men.

This second edition brings on board John Bilezikian and Dirk Vanderschueren as editors with Eric Orwoll. The table of contents is more than doubling with 58 planned chapters. The format is larger – 8.5 x 11. This edition  of Osteoporosis in Men brings together even more eminent investigators and clinicians to interpret developments in this growing field, and describe state-of-the-art research as well as practical approaches to diagnosis, prevention and therapy.

  • Brings together more eminent investigators and clinicians to interpret developments in this growing field.
  • Describes state-of-the-art research as well as practical approaches to diagnosis, prevention and therapy.
  • There is no book on the market that covers osteoporosis in men as comprehensively as this book.

From the Back Cover:

"The editors of Osteoporosis in Men, Second Edition have produced a comprehensive compendium about osteoporosis as it relates to men. An established group of experts has contributed to the second edition of this excellent book. The topics range from the basics of osteoporosis to sections on growth of the skeleton, aging, importance of nutrition, sex hormones, and the development of the disorder. Key sections of clinical relevance including diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis in men are covered in depth. This book will serve as an excellent resource for established clinicians and investigators as well as for students and fellows."

--Richard Eastell, MD, FRCP, FRCPath, FMedSci, Professor of Bone Metabolism, Director of the NIHR Bone Biomedical Research Unit, Centre for Biomedical Research, Northern General Hospital, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, United Kingdom

"The 10 sections and total of 57 informative chapters in the second edition of the text Osteoporosis in Men constitute an impressive body of up-to-date information by leading experts on this important topic. The text is particularly useful because of its breadth extending from basic bone biology and environmental factors affecting skeletal development in men to clinical chapters on pathophysiology, diagnosis, and therapy. The editors have provided a comprehensive yet practical approach to the topic which makes the text useful to a broad potential audience ranging from trainees to established leaders in the field."

-- John T. Potts, Jr., MD, Director of Research and Physician-in-Chief emeritus, Massachusetts General Hospital, Jackson Distinguished Professor of Clinical Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA

"This thorough and comprehensive book integrates new, accessible, and informative material in the field. It will help investigators, as well as practitioners and students, to improve their understanding of male skeletal health and male skeletal loss. The additional knowledge, assembled in such a readable manner, should help us achieve one of our ultimate goals, namely better care of men with osteoporosis."

--Gerolamo Bianchi, MD, Department of Locomotor System, Division of Rheumatology, Azienda Sanitaria Genovese, Genova, Italy
