Outpatient Consultation & Care
Office Consultation: You will receive a comprehensive evaluation by one of our Osteoporosis and Bone Health Specialists, who will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan. In addition to healthy habits and nutrition, your bones may need medication to help prevent fracture and further bone loss.
After The Fracture … The Road To “Better Than Baseline”
If you have suffered a low-trauma fracture (whether hospitalized or not), your pre-injury status (baseline) was too vulnerable. Your bones and muscles were not strong enough to prevent the fracture. We want to help you get “Better than Baseline.”
Although there is no cure for osteoporosis, there are steps you can take to prevent, slow, or stop its progress. In some cases, you may even be able to improve bone density and reverse the disorder to some degree. Getting enough calcium and vitamin D are essential to bone health. There are also medications available to reduce the risk of broken bones. These medicines either (1) slow or stop bone loss or (2) rebuild bone.
Prescription medications (other than oral) are given by injection, either in the clinic or at home (by self injection) or infusion (a 30-minute IV given in the clinic).
