Osteoporosis

Primus osteoporosis specialists combine the latest medications with nutritional support and physical therapy to stop or slow bone loss. We have a wide range of experience treating people at high-risk for osteoporosis, including post-organ transplant patients and breast cancer survivors, who require a medical team that understands their unique needs.

  • Osteoporosis is a metabolic bone disorder in which bone tissue breaks down, making the bone becomes increasingly fragile leading to increasing risk of fracture.
  • Osteoporosis and osteopenia, which refers to low bone density in general, can affect people of all ages.
  • Bone loss in adolescence and early adulthood can be a result of a failure to attain peak bone mineral density, and accelerated bone loss may be particularly noted around menopause and in later years.
  • Many factors, including diet and the lack of proper exercise, contribute to bone loss during these periods.
  • It can also occur as a result of numerous underlying conditions, many of which are often not readily apparent during the course of a doctor visit.
  • Osteoporosis is a “silent disease,” since there are no warning signs or symptoms until fractures occur.
  • Defined in medical terms as a bone metabolic disease, Osteoporosis involves treating and preventing fractures using medication to strengthen bones.
  • The single most important thing in preventing the onset of osteoporosis is preventing falls that can happen due to poor eyesight, poor muscle strength and balance; causes that need to be identified and treated.

Tests

Central Bone Mineral Density Scan - A low-dose X-ray that measures the amount of bone present in different parts of your skeleton.

Blood and Urine Tests - Blood and/or urine tests check for abnormal hormone levels that may indicate bone loss or bone disease.

Why Choose Primus
Personalized Treatment Plan

The right osteoporosis treatment plan tailored to your age, gender and unique health needs can prevent injuries and even halt the disease’s progression. Our doctors carefully evaluate the causes and severity of your bone loss, which helps us choose the most effective treatment for you. Our team includes physical therapists and nutritionists who work with you to develop an exercise program and calcium-rich diet.

Doctors Read Your Bone Density Results

At many facilities, a technologist performs your bone density test and a radiologist flags any abnormal numbers a few days later. Here, the physician overseeing your treatment will work with the radiologist to interpret your bone density test results. This leads to a more informed and accurate diagnosis.

Expertise with High-Risk Patients

We specialize in treating the unique health needs of patients who have bone loss or develop osteoporosis after an organ transplant surgery or breast cancer. We also see a high number of male patients with risk factors such as liver disease.

Highly Specialized Team

Our collective expertise allows us to develop the most effective osteoporosis treatment for you. All of our doctors are board-certified endocrinologists. Our team also includes doctors certified in geriatric medicine and clinical densitometry, which is the study of bone health.

Frequently Asked Questions:

    Q. What is bone Metabolic Diseases?
  • Metabolic bone diseases are disorders of bone strength, usually caused by abnormalities of minerals (such as calcium or phosphorus), vitamin D, and bone mass or bone structure. The most common metabolic bone disorder is osteoporosis. When untreated, it can lead to fragility fractures, bone deformities and serious disability. People at a high risk for osteoporosis include patients with age, small body size, history of fractures, steroid use, intestinal diseases, patients undergone organ transplants and suffering from kidney disorders. Men and women of all ages may suffer from skeletal disorders. The most common include osteoporosis, osteomalacia, Paget’s disease and parathyroid disorders
  • Q. What is a DXA test?
  • A DXA test, which stands for Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry, is a low-level x-ray measuring important bone sites, and it is the most commonly used technique to assess bone density. It is painless, non-invasive, and takes about 10 minutes.
