Bones are everybody's business. This means that clinical osteology, now an independent specialty, nevertheless encompasses all branches of medicine and affects each and every one of us. Intended for doctors who seek precise information on bisphosphonates in medical practice, this book has been designed as an up-to-date manual to deal with the currently recognized indications for bisphosphonates, to outline situations and conditions for prevention of skeletal disorders, and to provide practical guidelines for treatment.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The authors present an exceptional background of bone disease and the need for awareness and recognition of the global problem. . This is clearly a book for clinicians and, most importantly, clinicians of varied specialties who usually do not consider bone involvement in other chronic disease states. The authors are highly credible authorities who present a clear picture of the physiology and pathology. . It is a worthy addition to any reference library." (Vincent F. Carr, Doody's Review Service, November, 2007)
