Vertebral Fracture Program

For patients who’ve suffered a spinal fracture, we offer comprehensive one-stop care, beginning with effective pain management.  Patients undergo an MRI to determine the extent of the fracture and are referred to the appropriate specialist if a procedure is needed. In addition, our nationally recognized rheumatologists evaluate patients’ bone health as the basis for post-fracture treatment of osteoporosis and prevention of re-fractures. Nowhere else in the state can a patient receive such multidisciplinary care in one visit.
