Bone Health & Testing

How Healthy are Your Bones?

At Women's Health Associates we are committed to your Bone Health.
We realize the loss of bone equates to increased risk of fracture, loss of mobility and loss of independence.  A DEXA bone densitometry is a simple, quick and noninvasive procedure which is the most accurate method available for the diagnosis of osteoporosis and is also considered an accurate estimator of fracture risk.  DEXA is also effective in tracking the effects of treatment for osteoporosis and other conditions that cause bone loss.

We are an ISCD certified site with a state of the art GE Bone Densitometer.  Dr. Robert Wool and Densitometry Specialist, Lori Stoudenmire, take your bone health seriously. Working together with you, we will develop a a plan to help keep your bones strong through, nutrition, exercise, and if needed, the appropriate medication.

The National Osteoporosis Foundation recommends bone density testing if:

  • You're a woman age 65 or older
  • You're a woman under age 65 who is menopausal and not on Hormone Replacement Therapy
