As many as 80 percent of all people who have had a fracture related to osteoporosis are likely to break another bone. However, steps can be taken to prevent, or lower the risk of, a second fracture. “The perfect time to intervene is after a patient has had a first fracture,” said orthopaedic surgeon Douglas Dirschl, MD, an expert on osteoporosis and fragility fractures.
