Center for Osteoporosis and Metabolic Bone Disease

The mission of Cleveland Clinic's Center for Osteoporosis and Metabolic Bone Disease is to evaluate and treat patients with osteoporosis and other forms of diseases that affect bone. Osteoporosis is common. About 57 million Americans have osteoporosis and low bone mass. About 34 million are at risk for the disease. Estimates suggest that about half of all women older than 50, and up to one in four men, will break a bone because of osteoporosis.

Since a woman has a greater than 50% chance of having a fracture, this is an important disease to evaluate and treat as early as possible. Osteoporosis is often called a silent disease because bone loss occurs without symptoms. The first symptom is often a fracture. By that time, a woman has often lost 30% or more of her bone mass. If evaluated at an early stage, patients can initiate prevention and treatment prior to the clinical manifestations of this silent disease.

Our goal is to evaluate patients at an early stage to prevent the major complication of osteoporosis (fractures), and treat patients at the earliest possible stage to prevent additional disease manifestations.

The Center sees patients with osteoporosis, disorders of calcium metabolism, and other metabolic bone diseases including Paget's Disease, osteomalacia, osteogenesis imperfecta and others. The center has a state of the art bone densitometer, which is used to assess bone density in the hip and spine, as well as radius and total body if clinically indicated. This technique allows the physicians to evaluate the degree of bone loss, to diagnose osteoporosis and the risk for future fracture.
