Osteoporosis is a condition in which bones become weak and brittle, making them more susceptible to fractures. The management of osteoporosis involves a combination of lifestyle changes, medication, and, in some cases, surgery.
Our orthopedic team commendably manages the bone health of patient by a combination of lifestyle changes, medication, and surgery, if necessary, and reduces the associated risks and complications.These include a healthy diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, regular exercise, quitting smoking, limiting alcohol consumption, and avoiding falls.
Various medications are also provided by the team to manage osteoporosis, including bisphosphonates, selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs), calcitonin, and denosumab. These medications work by slowing down bone loss, increasing bone density, and reducing the risk of fractures.
