Gynecology - Osteoporosis
As we live to increasingly older ages, loss of strength in our bones becomes more common.
These changes are generally silent but may have devastating consequences for a woman’s health if a serious bone fracture occurs.
Specific risk factors for osteoporosis include:
- Family history of osteoporosis
- Medical conditions
- A history of cancer
- Early menopause
- Prolonged use of certain medications
We provide comprehensive evaluation of osteoporosis risk in our offices including:
- Review of personal and family medical history
- Bone Density testing in our Lutherville office, reviewed with you by your health care provider.
- Specific blood testing, also drawn in our office
- Consultation with an endocrinologist specializing in bone density problems and management of osteoporosis when needed. We work closely with the leading specialists in our area in providing integrated care for our patients.
