Healthy Bone Clinic
Eby Orthopaedics is proud to announce our Healthy Bone Clinic. This clinic is designed for our patients 50+ who experience fragility fractures. A fragility fracture is defined as a low energy fracture that results from a fall at standing height or from picking up a light item (i.e. a trip on the sidewalk, picking up a gallon of milk). These fractures result because of poor bone quality due to Osteoporosis.
As a part of our Healthy Bone Clinic we will be offering a Fracture Liaison Service with providers specially trained to treat the "signal" fracture--the first fracture in what could become a chain of breaks. The clinic will improve quality of life while helping to avoid debilitating fractures resulting in significant cost savings to both the individual and the nation's healthcare chain.
