Osteoporosis is a condition of decreased bone strength that increases a person’s risk for fracture (breaking a bone). One in four women over the age of 50 suffers from osteoporosis but this condition can affect anyone.

In 1994, we launched Canada's first Multidisciplinary Osteoporosis Program. Today, we are leading experts in the management and treatment of this condition. We take a holistic approach to bone health with our multidisciplinary team which includes: physicians, clinical nurse specialist, pharmacist, physical therapist, occupational therapist, registered dietitian and bone densitometry technologists.
