In the framework of this clinic, patients with decreased bone mass, bone fractures and calcium and phosphate metabolism disorders are diagnosed and treated. We treat both women and men with osteoporosis due to: cessation of menstruation (menopause in women); a lack of sex hormones from endocrine tumors such as pituitary tumors, therapies for breast and prostate cancer, eating disorders; inflammatory diseases, glucocorticoid excess, post bariatric surgery and medications that cause bone loss.
We also diagnose and treat vitamin D deficiency caused by a lack of sun exposure, obesity surgery, liver disease and neurological drugs.
Patients with calcium metabolism disorders due to hyperparathyroidism (high calcium) caused by benign or malignant tumors of the parathyroid glands or familial endocrine syndromes and hypoparathyroidism (low calcium) are evaluated by a team that includes an endocrinologist, an endocrine surgeon (if necessary), an otolaryngologist, a radiologist, a nuclear medicine specialist and a geneticist.
We offer diagnosis and treatment of rare bone diseases including: phosphate metabolism disorders, hypophosphatasia, mastocytosis, osteogenesis imperfecta and Paget's disease of bone.
At Hadassah’s central laboratory, specialized blood tests are carried out to evaluate bone turnover markers.
Bone density tests are performed at The Hadassah Mount Scopus Osteoporosis Center.
