The Osteoporosis Center of The Fort Hamilton Hospital provides high-quality care for women who may be at risk of developing osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disease that gradually weakens the bones, causing them to become brittle and prone to fractures. Osteoporosis and its associated fractures can rob you of your mobility and independence. Early detection using bone density measurement is the best way to protect yourself from the potentially debilitating effects of osteoporosis.
A physician’s order may be necessary for insurance reimbursement. Speak with your physician about receiving the DEXA scan. The Osteoporosis Center is conveniently located on the first floor in Women’s Health Choice.
