 What we do

We provide assessment, treatment and advice on osteoporosis and fracture prevention.

 

We care for and treat people who are over the age of 50 who have had a prior minimal trauma fracture ( a fall from a standing height or equivalent trauma). We also care for people with osteoporosis or osteopenia who have a risk of fracture.

 

 What to bring

  • Blood results
  • Referral
  • Medicare card
  • Previous DEXA Bone Mineral Density report if you have one and any recent blood test results.
  • If you need to have a DEXA Bone Mineral Density test, please wear clothing without metal, such as zippers or buckles. Ideally this means no metal bra under wires or clips.

  3. No known metastatic or myeloma bone disease/pathological fracture.
