4th International Conference on Orthopedics & Rheumatology
October 26-28, 2015 Baltimore, Maryland, USA

Theme: Access the cutting-edge information and maximize networking opportunities in the field of Orthopedics & Rheumatology

About the conference:

Orthopedics is a branch of surgery which is especially concerned with the preservation and restoration of the function of the skeletal system, its joints, and associated structures like ligaments and tendons. Rheumatology is the branch of medicine that deals with the treatment (preventive, active and rehabilitative) of patients suffering from joint and musculoskeletal diseases, including diffuse diseases of the connective tissue, but excluding trauma. Osteoporosis is a widespread metabolic bone disease characterized by decreased bone mass and poor bone quality. It leads to an increased frequency of fractures of the hip, spine, and wrist. Osteoporosis is a global public health problem currently affecting more than 200 million people worldwide. Rheumatic diseases can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or race, but rheumatologists have long known that certain rheumatic diseases are more prevalent in minority populations than they are in the general population. They have also known that certain rheumatic diseases differ in severity and outcome across ethnic groups. Realizing the importance of prevention, more research work is going on in Orthopedics and Rheumatology fields to let the world know about them.

The organizing committee is gearing up for an exciting and informative conference program including plenary lectures, symposia, workshops on a variety of topics, poster presentations and various programs for participants from all over the world. We invite you to join us at the Orthopedics-2015, where you will be sure to have a meaningful experience with scholars from around the world. All members of the Orthopedics-2015 organizing committee look forward to meeting you in Baltimore, USA. For more details please visit- http://orthopedics-rheumatology.conferenceseries.com/
