Did you know that fragility fractures caused by underlying Osteoporosis have become nearly epidemic in the United States among older adults with over 2 million fractures each year – more than heart attacks, strokes, and breast cancer combined and these numbers continue to rise! Mendelson Kornblum Orthopedics & Spine Specialists are proud to announce our partnership with the Own the Bone program in an effort to bring awareness and help prevent fragility fractures caused by Osteoporosis. If you are concerned that you have suffered a fragility fracture, call our office and set up an evaluation with Dr. Shironda Stewart .
Mendelson Kornblum Orthopedics has been recognized by the American Orthopedic Association (AOA) as a Star Performer for their participation in the AOA’s “Own the Bone” quality improvement program. This initiative provides tools and a web-based registry to ensure that fragility-fracture patients, such as those with osteoporosis, receive care to prevent future fractures.
