Join us in Kraków for the 7th Central European Congress on Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis on 27-28 September 2019. The main focus of the 2019 Congress are the advances in diagnostics and treatment of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis with a close look on issues associated with the long-term treatment - its efficacy and the risk of complications. A separate session will be devoted to secondary osteoporosis observed in endocrinopathies, kidney failure, systemic and neoplastic diseases. New therapeutic options for osteoporosis will be presented as well. Apart from the osteoarthritis treatment – guidelines for pain management and physiotherapy will be discussed. During one of the sessions attendees will have a chance to debate healthy aging, sarcopenia and falls. The round-table discussion will focus on making hard therapeutic decisions. During the Congress we will present the problem of a decrease in the number of patients under treatment and discuss possible solutions. Among the list of Invited Speakers we have an honour to present Profs. J.Kanis, J.Y.Reginster, S.E.Papapoulos, S.Cummings. Invited lecturers from Poland and abroad will present their studies in a form of short lectures and participants’ papers will be presented as posters and lectures. Scientific program will include over 49 lectures and a poster session. Official languages of the Congress are Polish and English (simultaneous translations will be provided).
