Made mostly of collagen, bone is a living, growing tissue. Collagen is a protein that provides a soft framework, and calcium phosphate is a mineral that adds strength and hardens the framework. This combination of collagen and calcium makes bone strong and flexible enough to withstand stress.

As we age our bones cells begin to dissolve and the structure that supports our bones become weaker, which increases the risk of developing a disease called osteoporosis. Osteoporosis, which literally means porous bone, is a disease in which the density and quality of bone are reduced.

According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, it is estimated that worldwide there is a fracture caused by osteoporosis every three seconds. More than 320,000 hip fractures occur annually in North America and are associated with an average mortality rate of 21% within just one year. Furthermore, hip fractures nearly double the overall risk of mortality. Worldwide the incidence of hip fractures is on the rise and has grown by an estimated 25%.

At Northwest Bone Health we focus on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases that affect your bones, particularly osteoporosis. We utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging equipment called a Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scanner that can assess trabecular bone score (TBS) and vertebral fracture assessment (VFA). We also offer novel therapies including oral and IV bisphosphonates, Prolia, Forteo, Tymlos and Evenity while encouraging an active lifestyle, fall prevention, and proper calcium, vitamin D intake, and other lifestyle modifications.


Tanya Blaty, DO

Bone Health

Dr. Tanya Blaty specializes in bone health, which consists of conditions such as osteopenia and osteoporosis. Dr. Blaty attended medical school at Midwestern University Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine. She then went on to complete an internal residency program at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis, Oregon and an endocrinology fellowship at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Throughout her residency and fellowship training, she was very active in the bone field through creating a quality improvement project, participating in multiple research studies/publications related to bone health in orthopedics, attending and speaking at various osteoporosis meetings and conferences, and being selected to complete a preceptorship with world-renowned bone health experts at Columbia University.

Dr. Blaty is passionate about helping patients maintain their quality of life, which can be achieved with management of bone conditions, such as osteopenia and osteoporosis. Low bone density is an underappreciated disorder, and Dr. Blaty is very excited to help fill that treatment gap in the Inland Northwest.

When Dr. Blaty is not practicing medicine, she enjoys spending time with family, exercising, hiking, and boating.
