About Our Practice

With a dedicated and compassionate team, we aim to deliver the best possible care to every patient while keeping their whole health in mind. Our expert orthopedic doctors and spine surgeons are well-versed in non-surgical and surgical care for osteoarthritis and conditions that affect your hip, knee, spine, shoulder, elbow, hand or wrist. Our physicians care for traumatic injuries, while our spine surgeons focus on delivering excellent, evidence-based care for neck and back pain, such as non-opioid pain relief and minimally invasive surgery.

Our physicians are fellowship-trained in orthopedics, meaning they’ve completed comprehensive training in their subspecialty areas beyond residency. They stay current on the latest breakthroughs in orthopedics and spine, including biologic shoulder resurfacing, partial knee replacement and custom joint implants.

Your Bone Health Matters

Why Is Bone Health Important?

Your bone tissue grows and changes every day, just like all of the other cells in your body. Caring for and nourish these cells is important to your whole health as bone cells and tissues are constantly replaced with new ones. The amount of bone cells and tissue you have is referred to as bone mass or bone density; the higher your bone density, the stronger your bones.

Bone density naturally diminishes as you age. Women are especially vulnerable, rapidly losing bone density because of the hormonal changes that occur during menopause.

And while low bone density happens more often and sooner in women, men are also affected as they age.

Low bone density can lead to a serious condition called osteoporosis, which causes your bones to become thin and fragile. If you have osteoporosis, you may have bone pain and be at a higher risk for fractures.

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a condition characterized by weak, brittle bones that are easily broken. It’s most seen in older women. However, many men aged 50 and older also experience bone fractures due to osteoporosis.

A precursor to osteoporosis is called osteopenia, a condition that leads to diminished bone density, but not to the degree of osteoporosis.

Usually without symptoms until a bone breaks, osteoporosis can be detected with a Dexa scan or bone mineral density test. Effective treatments are available in the form of prescription medications, vitamin D and calcium supplements, along with lifestyle modifications such as not smoking and getting regular exercise.

Risk Factors

Bone health can be affected by many factors. Some osteoporosis risk factors are not within our control, like:

  • Being Caucasian or Asian
  • Being female
  • Being smaller in stature
  • Growing older
  • Having a family history of osteoporosis
  • Having certain medical conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus or celiac disease

As far as what you can control, there are many steps you can take to positively influence your potential risk and protect your bones for a lifetime, including proper nutrition, getting enough physical activity and lifestyle changes, such as stopping smoking, limiting alcohol and making sure you get enough calcium and vitamin D in your diet through nutrition and/or supplementation.

Measuring Bone Density

If you’re concerned about your bone health or are post-menopausal, finding out how strong your bones are can be as simple as a painless test, like a DEXA scan, at your doctor’s appointment.
