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 bisphosphonates, IV infusions, Prolia, Forteo, and Tymlos while encouraging an active lifestyle, fall prevention, and proper calcium, vitamin D intake, and other lifestyle modifications.
