What Is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is often called a silent disease, because it doesn’t typically cause any symptoms until it causes a fracture. If you have been diagnosed with osteoporosis, an orthopedist can help you manage the complications and protect your bone health.

Watch this video to learn more about osteoporosis. As you age, your ability to produce bone tissue decreases, and you simultaneously begin to lose bone density. When you lose a significant amount of density, this is called osteoporosis. It leaves you vulnerable to fractures that can be dangerous and cause decreased mobility.
