Dr. Siris introduces herself and describes what osteoporosis is.
My name is Ethel Siris. I am a physician at the Columbia University Medical Center, New York Presbyterian Hospital where I specialize in osteoporosis. I am the Madeline C. Stabile Professor of Clinical Medicine at Columbia University’s Medical School and I direct something called the Toni Stabile Osteoporosis Center which is a clinical and research entity at this institution.
Osteoporosis is a skeletal disease which in essence is a skeleton that’s not as strong as it should be, and because it’s not as strong as it should be, there is a propensity for bones to break with minimal trauma.
