In the United States, more than 40 million people either already have osteoporosis or are at high risk due to low bone mass. Osteoporosis can occur in both men and women and at any age, but it is most common in older women.
On July 25, Dr. Weber will discuss the expanding epidemic of osteoporosis; identify the causes of the disease and the different prevention and treatment options. He will also discuss fragility fractures and the necessary steps to prevent these injuries from occurring.
Dr. Weber practices with Orthopedic Associates of Southwestern Ohio (OASWO) and sees patients out of their Sidney office. He is fellowship trained and provides general orthopedic care including total joint replacements, rotator cuff repair and sports medicine injury care. With his specialized training, Dr. Weber also sees and treats patients with complex fractures; including the upper extremity and lower extremity and other bones and joints, isolated fractures/dislocation, and poly-trauma, or multiple traumatic injuries.
