Each year, 30 percent of adults aged 65 and older suffer a fall and break a bone because of OSTEOPOROSIS. But many leave the hospital unaware of why they broke a bone.

To prevent future injuries, we work with primary care physicians and orthopedic specialists to identify people with a propensity for breaking bones often because of osteoporosis.

Diagnosis & Prevention

While the Emergency Room diagnoses most broken bones, a Bone Health specialist helps you maintain independence and prevents additional broken bones.
