    What is the Metabolic Bone Clinic?

    The Metabolic Bone Clinic is a comprehensive clinic specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents with skeletal health disorders. This includes a variety of abnormalities affecting calcium, phosphorus and Vitamin D metabolism, including disorders causing both high and low bone density, rickets of all kinds, recurrent fractures, bowlegs, McCune Albright syndrome and osteoporosis. We provide outpatient infusion of bisphosphonates for treatment of osteoporosis and serve as a regional referral center for patients with hypophosphatemic rickets.

    Our ultimate goal is to provide ongoing, compassionate care for your child, promoting their health and well-being and preventing the consequences of bone disease including deformity, pain, growth delay, fractures or other bone-related disabilities.
