Strong Bones Services
The Strong Bones program offers comprehensive bone health services from a multi-disciplinary team that’s conveniently located near your work and home. We help you address the complex causes of low bone density fragility and work with you to design the most effective treatment plan.
From your first phone call or e-mail, a dedicated nurse navigator will guide you through the process of scheduling a bone density (DXA) scan and/or making an appointment with our bone health care team.
Fracture Liaison Service
If you have experienced a fragility fracture, a broken bone resulting from a mild trauma, such as bumping into furniture or a minor fall, you are at much greater risk of breaking another bone.
ChristianaCare’s Fracture Liaison Service identifies patients with fragility fractures and coordinates follow-up care, screening and any necessary treatment.
Strong Bones Fracture Liaison Service is in place at ChristianaCare for fractures of the hip and upper arm, which are common in people with osteoporosis. In 2016, we expanded our services to include patients with vertebral compression fractures and will continue to expand our services to other orthopaedic populations.
Partnering with Your Primary Care Physician
Our multidisciplinary care team can partner with your primary care physician to ensure you’re getting the coordinated bone health care that you need. We offer bone density (DXA) scans, bone health consultations and check-ups as part of our partnership with your provider.
