Osteoporosis is a systemic disease that weakens bones, resulting in increased risk of painful fractures that may require surgery.

St. Luke's Osteoporosis and Bone Health program is dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, and management of osteoporosis, and the prevention of broken bones. Our goal is to help you get on your feet sooner, with fewer complications, and a lower risk of further fractures, and to help you achieve your best quality of life.
