Osteoporosis and Fracture Prevention

“Most people don’t even know they have osteoporosis until they break a bone,” says Dr. Deese. “We are working to educate the community about this silent disease and how to prevent fractures.”  

  • J. Melvin Deese Jr., M.D.

    Board-certified orthopaedic surgeon at Summit Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Surgery.

  • Did you know...
    The mortality rate in the United States for patients over 50 due to an osteoporosis related hip fracture is 25 percent. ​​​​​​​

  • Don't be a statistic.
    One out of two women and one out of four men will sustain a fracture due to osteoporosis during their lifetime, but you don’t have to be that one.
