This course addresses current concepts and state-of-the-art treatment options fragility fracture care. A combination of case discussions, anatomical specimen labs, and evidence-based lectures will be used to deliver the content. Indications and techniques in osteoporotic fracture care will be discussed and practiced. The principles and advantages of comanaged care approach will be identified. Facilitated by an expert Faculty consisting of both surgeons and medicine physicians, an important focus will be placed on group discussions and hands-on.

Top national, regional, and international faculty
