Literally meaning "porous bone", osteoporosis is a disease characterized by the deterioration of bone tissue. When people have this disease, their bones are more fragile and more susceptible to injuries and fractures than normal. It mostly affects the hip, spine and wrist bones of men as well as women, but can be treated (and even in some cases prevented), if we get there first.
Vista Health System offers osteoporosis screenings, as well as the latest technology to provide you with accurate, instant results.
