The Metabolic Bone Diseases Clinic at Tufts Medical Center provides cutting edge care to patients with osteoporosis, hyperparathyroidism, and other conditions that weaken bones. Our doctors work with hundreds of patients every year to accurately diagnose their condition and develop a customized, long-term treatment plan to prevent complications.

How will my condition be managed?
Our doctors use a wide range of advanced diagnostic techniques to uncover what is causing your bone and/or mineral disease. This includes a full musculoskeletal exam, a targeted metabolic laboratory work-up, and specific imaging studies.
Once the doctors know more about your condition, they will work closely with you to develop a customized treatment plan to optimize bone mass and in turn, reduce fractures and prevent complications. Our doctors often recommend cutting edge diet and lifestyle changes to effectively treat many bone and related diseases. Our doctors may also prescribe current medications, if necessary. Once a treatment plan is in place, your Tufts Medical Center doctors will continue to monitor your progress and make changes as needed.
