Conditions We Treat

Depend on our doctors to diagnose and treat:

  • Calcium deficiency (hypocalcemia) – a lack of the mineral calcium in the body
  • Fragility fracture – broken bone caused by a fall or injury
  • Hyperparathyroidism – when overactive parathyroid glands cause too much calcium in the blood (hypercalcemia)
  • Insufficiency fracture – a type of stress fracture (broken bone) due to bone weakness
  • Non-healing fractures – broken bones that do not heal after routine treatment
  • Osteopenia – when bones are weak but not as severely as bones with osteoporosis
  • Osteoporosis – weak or brittle bones due to aging, lack of calcium or vitamin D, or hormone changes
  • Vitamin D deficiency – a lack of vitamin D, a nutrient that helps the body make strong bones

Osteoporosis Prevention & Care

Ask our physicians if you’re at risk for osteopenia or osteoporosis. You may have screening tests, such as a dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan. This is an imaging test that helps assess the density of your bones. Your doctor can recommend lifestyle changes, exercises, medications, and supplements to increase the strength of your bones.
