Arizona Endocrinology Center has been pioneer in osteoporosis management. We were one of the first offices in the valley with Hologic Bone Density machine.
We offer onsite DEXA scan testing using state-of-the-art Hologic Discovery C bone density machine with fracture risk assessment and Vertebral fracture assessment.
We treat all Metabolic bone disorders including Osteoporosis, Osteopenia and Osteomalacia.
We offer Prolia and Boniva injections onsite and schedule Reclast infusions.
Dexa Scan - Bone Density Testing
We have a new state-of-the-art "Hologic Discovery C" bone density machine for more accurate testing.
Osteoporosis is a growing healthcare crisis affecting millions of women and men worldwide. Fortunately, bone density testing is safe and non-invasive, and when osteoporosis is detected early, it is treatable.
What is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis makes your bones weak and more likely to break.
Risk factors include:
Being small and thin
Having a family history of osteoporosis
Taking certain medicines
Being a white or Asian woman
Having osteopenia, which is low bone density
Osteoporosis is a silent disease. You might not know you have it until you break a bone. A bone mineral density test is the best way to check your bone health. To keep bones strong, eat a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, exercise and do not smoke. If needed, medicines can also help.
