Bone Health Clinic

If you’ve ever bro­ken a bone, or if your provider has iden­ti­fied you as hav­ing com­pro­mised bone qual­i­ty or osteo­poro­sis, it’s impor­tant that you receive the appro­pri­ate treat­ment and fol­low up to make sure you don’t break more bones in the future. Your provider may refer you to the Bone Health Clin­ic, for­mer­ly known as Frac­ture Liai­son Ser­vice. Con­trary to pop­u­lar belief, com­pro­mised bone qual­i­ty (also known as osteo­poro­sis), impacts both men and women by alter­ing the strength and struc­ture inside your bones. Once you break a bone, your risk of break­ing anoth­er bone increas­es 200 to 300%. 

The Bone Health Clin­ic can help pre­vent this by con­duct­ing a com­pre­hen­sive bone health eval­u­a­tion. With blood tests and imag­ing, we can deter­mine if there is an under­ly­ing cause for poor bone qual­i­ty, and devel­op a per­son­al­ized plan (con­sist­ing of both lifestyle mod­i­fi­ca­tions and med­ica­tion rec­om­men­da­tions) to improve your bone strength and reduce the risk of future fractures.
