Osteoporosis is a condition in which the bones become weak and more likely to break. This can occur when the body makes too little bone, loses too much bone, or both. Osteopenia is low bone density, which can lead to osteoporosis. Our experts are dedicated to treating these conditions and helping you learn how to reduce your risk for fractures.

Healthcare providers, learn more about our referral criteria.

What to Expect: Your First Visit

  • Please bring a list of all the medications you have taken within the past 10 years. Certain medications affect your bone health and treatment options. 
  • Your provider will review your records, ask about your medical history and perform a physical exam. 
  • If you have not had one yet, your provider will order a DXA bone density scan. This test is an enhanced form of X-ray technology used to measure bone loss. You may also need other tests; these and the DXA scan can be done onsite. 
  • You will learn how lifestyle changes, such as diet and exercise, can help prevent bone loss. Your provider will explain fall prevention recommendations and how to reduce your risk for fractures. 
  • You will receive information about treatment options and your provider will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan.
