Inpatient Services
We include inpatient evaluation during hospitalizations for low trauma fractures and consultations of complex metabolic bone disorders.

Outpatient Services
We offer office consultations with the osteoporosis specialists and the osteoporosis nurse clinician.

An intravenous infusion area is available for patients who require intravenous osteoporosis medications and clinical counseling with the osteoporosis nurse clinician.

Bone Densitometry and Spine Vertebral Assessment (DXA and SVA)

A state-of-the-art Hologic Discovery Densitometer allows us to evaluate your bone health. This technology allows the assessment of bone density in the spine, hip and wrist. The densitometer gives an instant assessment of vertebral morphometric changes which allows us to visualize vertebral fractures (spine fractures). A Hologic Delphi W allows us to provide our patients with on-site, easily accessible, state-of-the-art imaging. This service is provided on both a scheduled and walk-in basis.

The whole body densitometry and body composition services are useful to visualize the percent of muscle mass and fat present in patients. We can then use this information for research settings or to tailor a weight management plan.

Peripheral bone densitometry is provided to patients with low trauma fractures. This procedure is a heel ultrasound and is performed by the osteoporosis nurse clinician.

Bone Histomorphometry
This service is coordinated with Dr. Stuart Sprague at the Northwestern Evanston campus. The service allows us to visualize the specific bone components and determine if there are any bone specific abnormalities present. This service is of particular importance in patients with complex medical presentations.

Bone MicroCT imaging
This available service is a research modality that allows us to visualize the three dimensional structure of bone. Although the service is largely restricted to research, its potential lies in its ability to better document the bone remodeling associated with anabolic agents.

Emergency Department
All low trauma fractures seen at NMH's Emergency Department are recommended to undergo evaluation for osteoporosis and metabolic bone diseases. Patients with fractures are at an increased risk of hip fractures. Our goal is to evaluate and treat them in an effort to reduce the likelihood of future fractures.
