I am a member of the Orthopaedic Geriatric Fracture Team, working in collaboration with orthopaedic surgeon Julie Switzer, MD, and Veronica Carson, NP. My role on the team is bone health and osteoporosis. The Orthopaedic Department offers a Bone Health /Osteoporosis Clinic for all patients over the age of 45 who have sustained fractures. At this clinic, we offer osteoporosis screening and evaluation and health education, and we initiate treatment. We also screen for complex secondary causes of osteoporosis and make referrals to Endocrinology and the Metabolic Bone Clinic for complex cases.
