Osteoporosis and bone health is a medical specialty that focuses on the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis, osteopenia, and other bone health injuries and conditions. At Georgia Bone & Joint, we understand that healthy bones are the foundation to keeping you active and moving, and the first step in treating osteoporosis is diagnosis.
Osteoporosis is a disease that causes bones to become weaker and more likely to break. One in three women will be affected by osteoporosis in their lifetime, and those with osteoporosis are 5 times more likely to suffer a spine or hip fracture. Fractures caused by osteoporosis most commonly occur in the spine, hip, and wrist, and at Georgia Bone & Joint, we utilize the newest treatments and diagnostic techniques, including bone density scanning, to prevent and repair fragile bones.
Georgia Bone and Joint, along with our specialty-trained bone health provider, is South Atlanta’s only orthopedic surgery group specializing in osteoporosis and bone health. With our commitment to continued education through attending courses, lecturing, writing, and actively learning the newest procedures and techniques, our specialist has the knowledge and experience to create a plan tailored to your needs, whether you have already been diagnosed with osteoporosis or you want a plan to prevent bone disease.
