Clinic Overview

Body

This clinic treats patients who have metabolic bone conditions such as thin, thick, soft, brittle or irregular bones—diseases caused by problems with mineral metabolism, nutrition or genetic disorders.

We also see patients with hyperparathyroidism, hypercalcemia, hypophosphatemia, hypophosphatasia, fibrous dysplasia and low bone density. Many of these diseases lead to fractures of the bones. Our goal is to prevent fractures and reduce bone pain.

The Metabolic Bone Disease Clinic measures bone density (DEXA) and offers additional diagnostic services for patients suffering from diseases such as osteoporosis.

Our multidisciplinary team provides nutritional advice, medications, physical therapy and prevention education to prevent falls and fractures. Surgery is sometimes recommended, in which case we partner with our patients and colleagues in orthopedic surgery to make the bone stronger so that surgery will be more successful.

Directions & Parking

The UW Medical Center-Roosevelt clinics are located at 4245 and 4225 Roosevelt Way N.E. The two red brick buildings are a few blocks northwest of the main medical center; 4225 (UWMC-Roosevelt I) is the southernmost of the two buildings. See map.

From Interstate 5: 
  • Exit at Northeast 45th Street and head east. If you are traveling I-5 northbound, turn right at the exit ramp onto 45th. If you are traveling on I-5 southbound, turn left onto 45th. 
  • From the freeway, travel four blocks and turn right onto Roosevelt Way, a one-way street. 
  • Continue two blocks. The buildings are on the right.

From Interstate 405:
  • Take exit 14 (State Route 520), heading west to Seattle across the Lake Washington bridge. 
  • Merge onto Interstate 5 northbound and exit at Northeast 45th Street.

Free shuttle service is available between the medical center and the two Roosevelt buildings. 
Several bus lines of King County Metro Transit serve Roosevelt Way and the surrounding neighborhood. Among them are routes No. 66, No. 67, No. 79 (north and southbound) and No. 355 (southbound only).
