"Orthopaedic surgeons are frequently the first, and often the only physicians to see fracture patients, and therefore have a key role in ensuring the patient is adequately evaluated for osteoporosis and treated," said Professor Cyrus Cooper, Chairman, IOF Committee of Scientific Advisors, and Chairman, IOF World Congress on Osteoporosis 2008 Scientific Committee. "Both Asian and international perspectives on how best to care, manage and treat fracture patients with osteoporosis will be presented and discussed in these three complementary sessions."
