Osteoporosis Intervention

Patients with osteoporosis experience a decrease in the density of their bones. As the bones lose their density, they become weaker, more brittle, and more susceptible to breaking. As you can imagine, side effects for this condition can include a tremendous amount of pain and discomfort. At Alamo, we specialize in osteoporosis intervention, which includes a variety of potential treatments ranging from simple diet and nutrition changes to surgery. Our range of experience and expertise coupled with the variety of treatment options means that we can attack your symptoms no matter how severe. Sometimes, this only involves prescribing a medication. Other times, patients will need to consider surgery. Either way, we have you covered. Our treatments focus on strengthening bones, reducing pain, and increasing your mobility and flexibility. Combined with our other specialties, like Pain Management, we can treat even severe osteoporosis.

Truly Remarkable Physician

"Dr. Whitney is probably one of the most caring, engaged doctors I have ever met. He replaced a knee and repaired a broken femur for my mother-in-law. Seven weeks later, she was up, walking, and pain free. Oh, yeah, and she’s 81 years old. A truly remarkable physician."
