Osteoporosis Care

Expect the Best in Osteoporosis Care

Osteoporosis is a bone condition characterized by weak, brittle and porous bones. We often think about osteoporosis as a disease that only women need to worry about, but men can be affected, too.

Osteoporosis is the leading cause of hip fractures - a disabling problem that affects many seniors. In addition, our spines are another part of the body that is seriously at risk from osteoporosis. Osteoporosis causes 700,000 fractures of the vertebrae each year and can cause an exaggerated curve in the back, called kyphosis.

Sacred Heartís Orthopedics Center works in conjunction with the osteoporosis specialists at the Sacred Heart Osteoporosis Center to provide comprehensive diagnosis and treatment options to persons suffering from osteoporosis.

Together, our radiologists, endocrinologists, orthopedic surgeons and rehabilitation specialists use a team approach to diagnose, treat and monitor the condition as well as treat any fractures or injuries that may result from the disease.

For more information on Sacred Heartís comprehensive osteoporosis services, please visit our Osteoporosis web page or call our dedicated information line at (850) 416-1600.
