2012

The faculty for the thirteenth annual Santa Fe Bone Symposium were Drs. Adler, Bilezikian, Bouxsein, Marcus, McClung, Miller, and Tanner. Exciting new developments in the understanding of bone physiology were presented. There were oral abstract presentations, interactive discussions of challenging cases, a debate on benefits and risks of long-term bisphosphonate therapy, and a panel discussion of controversial issues in the management of osteoporosis. Other topics included a review of the most important scientific publications in the past year, new and emerging therapy for osteoporosis, the benefits and limitations of clinical practice guidelines in the care of individual patients, the effects of metallic elements on skeletal health, clinical applications of bone turnover markers, an engineering perspective of skeletal health and disease, and an update on the role of the ISCD in education, certification, and advocacy for high quality bone density testing.
