Health news you can use
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.
