The osteoporosis clinic at Centro Medico Santagostino offers a specialized service dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of this disease.
Osteoporosis is characterized by deterioration in the quantity and quality of bone and an increased bone brittleness that leads to an increased risk of fractures. Of all diseases that can affect the bones, osteoporosis is the most widespread, affecting both men and women (post-menopausal women have a four fold higher risk).
The clinic relies on the collaboration of professionals specializing in osteoporosis and related problems, as well as the use of specific therapeutic intervention techniques and diagnosis via DXA (Bone Densitometry).
The endocrinologist also collaborates with other specialists at the center to ensure that each patient receives fully integrated care.
