Osteoporosis Center


More than 28 million Americans are affected by osteoporosis and many don't even know it. With education, early detection and proper treatment, people are living more active lives than ever before.

What Is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a degenerative bone disease resulting from the gradual depletion of the calcium content of the skeleton. This causes a decrease in bone production and/or an increased rate of bone loss. Many factors influence osteoporosis in women and men including calcium intake, level of physical activity and use of alcohol or tobacco.

Our team is committed to enhancing the development and clinical use of diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for osteoporosis and related diseases, as well as helping educate the public about possible risk factors and available treatments.
