Choose Bone Health Care That Keeps You Active

Did you know 1 out of 2 women over 50 years old and 1 out of 4 men over 50 years old will break a bone due to osteoporosis? (National Osteoporosis Foundation)

The total death rate due to fractures caused by osteoporosis is greater than the rate for breast, ovarian & cervical cancer combined. However, if diagnosed and treated, patients with osteoporosis can effectively rebuild bone and prevent fractures.

What is Osteoporosis?

  • Osteoporosis is a bone disease in which the bones become brittle and fragile.
  • Osteoporosis itself has no symptoms; its main consequence is risk of bone fractures.
  • Osteoporotic fractures occur in situations where healthy people would not normally break a bone. 

Who Needs to be Screened for Osteoporosis?

  • Women 65 years or older
  • Post menopausal women less than 65 yrs old at high risk for osteporosiss
  • Men 70 years and older
  • If you are unsure, speak with your primary care physician. 

OrthoGeorgia Bone Health Clinic – Our Mission

  • Reduce overall fracture risk
  • Accelerate healing
  • Prevent subsequent fractures
  • Break the fragility cycle

The Bone Health team at OrthoGeorgia is committed to helping you maintain bone health as you age. Over time, bones naturally lose mineral density and become porous. This can make you susceptible to fractures, which can lead to debilitating pain, disability and loss of independence.

We are here to help you take a proactive approach to achieving and maintaining optimal bone health. Our experts help maximize your bone health and minimize your risk for bone fractures.
