OSTEOPOROSIS

Osteoporosis is a disease that causes the bones to weaken and makes them more likely to break. Osteoporosis itself is painless but the fractures it may cause are painful and may result in deformity, disability and even death. The causes of this thinning of bone are numerous, ranging from medication to malignant conditions of the bone marrow. A detailed history, physical exam, blood work and radiological procedures are often necessary to determine the cause of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is often treatable through adjustments in medication, diet and exercise. Identification of patients at risk for fractures is extremely important so that preventative measures can be initiated.

 

To our Patients, Families and Communities,

Your health, welfare & safety are paramount when you come for an appointment at any of our facilities. We are closely monitoring the guidance of the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention regarding the spread of the virus. Our focus is to ensure we meet our patient’s needs while doing our part to keep you, our associates, and our communities safe. Effective immediately, the Acute Injury Clinic (AIC), will remain open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. The AIC will NOT open on Saturdays.

At this time, the impact to our communities has been minimal and our staff is focused on providing the orthopaedic care our patients expect and deserve. If you have an appointment with us, we respectfully ask that you let us know if you have a fever, cough, and/or shortness of breath in advance of your appointment. Also, if you have recently traveled to or been in close contact with anyone who has traveled outside of New Hampshire, especially to New York State, we ask that you avoid visiting our practice for a period of 14 healthy days.

Thank you for your continued trust in COPA. We appreciate your cooperation as we work to support the health of our patients & employees.

Sincerely,

Ron Chorzewski
