Osteoporosis | Orthopädie Zentrum Altona


With advancing age, bones may become brittle, particularly in women, a condition termed osteoporosis. To prevent the devastating consequences of hip fractures or vertebral fractures in the elderly, routine screening for osteoporosis is recommended in women from age 50 on, and in men aged 60 or over.

We offer state of the art DXA bone mineral density assessment on premises. Detected early, osteoporosis can successfully be treated by oral medication and physical activity, thus preventing a substantial proportion of possible fractures later in life.
