Bone Health Program

Submit request or call to make an appointment.

The Bone Health Program at Norton Women’s & Children’s Hospital is a service dedicated to treating bone conditions, including prevention and care for osteoporosis.

The program offers preventive services and treatment plans for all those at risk for bone issues — from adolescents to seniors. It participates in and has been recognized by Own the Bone, a program of prevention strategies supported by the American Orthopaedic Association.

Most people with weak or brittle bones are unaware of the condition until they fall and experience a serious fracture. The Bone Health Program screens, identifies and cares for individuals with bone issues. You’ll also receive education and support around lifestyle changes that help bone health. The goal is to improve the health of your bones and bring an end to second fractures and fragility fractures, and reduce your risk of falling.

If you believe you may be at risk, call our nurse navigator today at (502) 899-9039.
