Welcome to International MSF
IMSF is a recently established society with the goal of promoting the new concept in the prevention and treatment of skeleton diseases, based on the principles of personalized and integrated medicine, in order to approach the skeleton as a complex organ which functions as a whole.
Why Do We Need a New Concept in Treatment of Chronic Skeleton Diseases?
Skeleton is a complex organ which must be considered as a whole. It consists of a number of bones and joints and at least three types of tissues: bone, cartilage and muscle-fibrotic tissue.
Skeleton is affected by many factors which can be grouped into genetic, bio-mechanical and metabolic. As the structure of the bone is constantly changing through a process of bone remodeling we can say that bone structure and quality is the result of all of these factors
Function of the skeleton depends on the structure and quality of all of its parts. Therefore it is always necessary to implement integrated treatment for the skeleton as a whole.
There are no diagnostic methods able to measure the bone strength or quality neither, of cartilage, nor to measure the quality of skeleton in general. Therefore we need to make a plan of treatment based on the assessment of skeleton status and risks of complication. Because there are significant diversities among the people regarding the influence of those factors, personalized approach in diagnostic evaluation and treatment is necessary.
Because it is not possible for the same therapeutic agent or a drug to act on all parts of the skeleton, it is necessary to implement a combination of several methods when conducting the treatment.
Common clinical practice regarding the treatment of chronic bone and joint diseases does not yield satisfactory results and does not accept any of the above facts. Therefore it is necessary to change the approach and introduce a new concept
