Mercer-Bucks Orthopaedics Bone Health Program was founded by Thomas Bills, MD, PhD. With years of experience in the area of osteoporosis and as a consulting staff physician at the Metabolic Bone Disease Service and Osteoporosis Center in the Hospital for Special Surgery at Cornell Medical School in NYC, Dr. Bills decided to bring his expertise local to both Mercer and Bucks Counties. He created the bone health program for patients to obtain a personalized comprehensive orthopaedic assessment designed to diagnose and treat patients with osteoporosis through the combined use of bone imaging tests, lab studies and medical evaluation. He provides risk assessments, treatment options, preventative recommendations and education. The goal of MBO’s Bone Health Program is to identify high risk patients, to treat them quickly and to reduce the risk of future fractures.
Osteoporosis is a disease that weakens the bone causing it to become brittle and break easily. These breaks are called fragility fractures and most commonly happen in the hip, spine and wrist.
Osteoporosis is called the “silent disease” because there are no signs or symptoms until a bone breaks.
There is no cure for osteoporosis, but there are steps you can take to slow its’ progression.
