Overview

Overview

The Metabolic Bone Disease & Endocrine Calcium Center is comprised of a team of expert physician-scientists who specialize in the treatment of a vast number of common and rare bone, calcium and other mineral disorders associated with the regulation of skeletal and parathyroid hormone functions.

The center streamlines the evaluation and treatment of calcium disorders, parathyroid disorders including hyperparathyroid, Vitamin D deficiency, and hypoparathyroid conditions.

Based in the Department of Endocrinology, the Metabolic Bone Disease & Endocrine Calcium Center provides superior access to a multidisciplinary team, providing Center-of-Excellence DXA bone density testing and interpretation, on-site laboratory testing, and a fully staffed infusion center for even the most sophisticated testing and drug administration requirements.

Our facilities allow our experts to perform specialized testing not found in most medical centers, and patients are provided access to a wide variety of therapies using the most up to date medications to diagnose and treat both common and rare bone diseases.

The Metabolic Bone Disease & Endocrine Calcium Center team has partnered with their highly skilled Endocrine Surgery colleagues to provide timely, integrated assessment of parathyroid abnormalities with ultrasonography, direct laryngoscopy, and other state of the art testing.

The Metabolic Bone Disease & Endocrine Calcium Center and the Department of Endocrine Surgery continue to collaborate to provide comprehensive pre-surgical assessment, timely surgical intervention, and post-surgical follow up for all patients with parathyroid disease in their care.

What We Treat

What We Treat

The Metabolic Bone Disease & Endocrine Calcium Center addresses problems associated with the regulation of the body's bone, mineral and hormone functions. Important minerals like calcium, phosphorus and magnesium are critical for the body’s normal functioning, and are often taken for granted as a part of everyday activities. Too much or too little of these minerals can be detrimental to the body’s ability to function properly, and can lead to other serious problems or complications.

Common problems associated with calcium disorders include vitamin D deficiency, intestinal disorders, kidney stones, osteoporosis and parathyroid disorders such as hyperparathyroidism. Additionally, metabolic abnormalities associated with obesity, bariatric surgery and organ transplantation are diagnosed and treated.
