Alan C. Dalkin, MD -- Director

Dr.Beginning in menopause, the average woman loses 30-35% of her bone mass. At this point, the risk of non-traumatic fractures increases dramatically.

The best therapy for osteoporosis is prevention and proper evaluation at the time of menopause. Our ability to accurately measure bone mass has rapidly advanced, as has our ability to tailor a treatment plan that can best maintain or even strengthen your bones.

Physicians at The Women's Place-Midlife Health are uniquely qualified to address issues facing women at risk of osteoporosis. Our doctors specialize in bone disease, osteoporosis, hormone replacement therapy, and a wide range of related fields. Specialized testing is available right here in our facility to diagnose osteoporosis and for follow up once treatment is initiated.
