Osteoporosis

Prevent and treat "the silent disease."
Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis, a common disease of bone thinning, affects more than 10 million Americans — and the majority of patients are not even aware they have it. In fact, 40% of women 50+ will experience an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime. HealthEast Osteoporosis Care offers a full range of osteoporosis services to evaluate bone density, maximize bone strength and minimize the risk of bone loss.
