Hip fractures have had a major impact on our healthcare system with an economic burden estimated to be over $20 billion per year. Due to the increasing age of our population, they’ll have an even greater impact in the future. In addition to the economic burden, hip fractures often result in major changes to one’s lifestyle. As a result, the detection, prevention and management of osteoporosis becomes an important health strategy. The topic for this podcast is osteoporosis and our guest is Kurt A. Kennel, MD., a Mayo Clinic Endocrinologist, and specialist in bone metabolism.
