Healthy Bone Clinic

The Healthy Bone Clinic at the Orthopaedic Institute is dedicated to providing the most comprehensive orthopaedic bone health care; including osteoporosis screening, diagnosis, treatment and education.

Osteoporosis is the most common bone disorder and a major health care issue.  With osteoporosis, the body loses bone mineral density and bone strength, increasing the risk of fracture.  There are no warning signs at the beginning.  In fact, most people don’t even realize they have it.  Bone fracture, pain, deformity and disability may not appear until osteoporosis becomes more advanced.  That’s why osteoporosis is often called the ‘silent killer’.

  • 50% of all women and up to 25% of all men will suffer a fragility fracture in their lifetime.
  • If you have had a previous fracture, you are two times as likely to sustain another.
  • Recognition and treatment of your fragility fracture can reduce risk of future fractures by 50%.
  • The good news is that it is preventable!
