Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and brittle, often leading to fractures of the hips, spine and wrists. Fractures are often the first visible sign of osteoporosis, and if left unrecognized and untreated can have a profound effect on a person’s quality of life and daily activities.

We learn about the causes and prevention methods of osteoporosis from Dr. Heather Hofflich, DO, as well as treatment options with Dr. Douglas Beall, MD, including the vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty. Finally we get to hear from two patients who benefited from a kyphoplasty and how their quality of life has improved.
