Bone and Joint Decade
NOF Congress 2010
The Bone and Joint Decade 2000-2010

Disorders such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, fractures and
late consequences in muscles and joints after diabetes are causing increasing societal problems.

For instance, 40% of the over 65 years old have symptoms of osteoarthritis. This is, among others, reflected in the fact that WHO has made 2000-2010 ”The Bone and Joint Decade”.  (http://www.boneandjointdecade.org)

The surgical treatment of these disorders often involves replacement of the joints with artificial implants, splint fixation in connection with fractures, reconstruction operations of the spine and operations of chronic sores as a result of diabetes.

Common to these operations is that a good result depends on an evidence based treatment strategy. About 1.5 million Danes suffer from these disorders and the problem is anticipated to increase markedly.

The need for treatment is anticipated to accelerate because of the combination of increased duration of life, overweight and increased treatment demands from the patients. Therefore there is a great need to examine and develop new treatment techniques.

The knowledge acquired by the research group is used for optimizing the functionality and the quality of life of orthopaedic surgical patients.

Solid Danish clinical research can be contributory to a more effective and specific treatment with considerably fewer complications than today.
