Finger Lakes Health Opens Osteoporosis Clinic of the Finger Lakes
Finger Lakes Health is pleased to announce the opening of the Osteoporosis Clinic of the Finger Lakes.

Overseen by Dr. Helen Wong, orthopaedic surgeon, the Osteoporosis Clinic of the Finger Lakes offers treatment to individuals diagnosed with osteoporosis and related bone diseases, along with preventive plans of action to maintain bone health. Dr. Wong focuses on practical ways to prevent and treat osteoporosis, as well as the fractures that may accompany this disease. She is committed to providing quality treatment for osteoporosis and bone health to patients in the Finger Lakes region. Nurse Practitioner Heather Green will be a vital part of the Osteoporosis Clinic. She will be assisting Dr. Wong in caring for our osteoporotic patients.

The Osteoporosis Clinic is located at Interlakes Orthopaedic Surgery, P.C., 293 West North Street, Geneva.

Osteoporosis is a common disease affecting women and men as they age. With osteoporosis, bones become fragile and are more likely to break. Osteoporosis literally means “porous bone,” and the disease results in an increased loss of bone mass and strength. The disease often progresses painlessly until a bone breaks. Broken bones, or fractures, occur typically in the hip, spine and wrist, with hip and spinal fractures having particularly serious consequences. Osteoporosis takes its toll slowly over time, when neither the patient nor the doctor is aware that the bones are weakening. However, osteoporosis does not have to be a normal part of the aging process.

Finger Lakes Health offers the gold standard in diagnosis. Through technology called dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry — or DEXA — the bone densitometer measures the bone mineral content and density of specific bone sites (mainly hip and spine) that are most susceptible to fracture due to osteoporosis and other degenerative bone diseases. DEXA is the most technologically advanced equipment in bone density diagnosis with a 99% accuracy rate.
