We provide screenings for those 50 and older with osteoporosis risk factors, all women age 65 and older and men age 70 and older. Screenings include special X-rays that measure bone density (DEXA scan). We also use blood tests to look at overall bone health.
Your screening results help us understand your risk factors, so we can make recommendations to help lower your fracture risk. This can include medicine, nutrition, balance therapy, fall prevention classes and smoking cessation resources.
Our certified fracture liaison and program coordinator work closely with orthopaedic and primary care doctors, OB/GYNs and endocrinologists to ensure everyone on your care team is informed and involved in maintaining your bone health.
