Bone & Joint Disorders

Osteoporosis

The Hospital for Joint Disease is a hospital which specializes in orthopedic surgery, rheumatology and rehabilitation of the patients with bone and joint disorders. Acknowledged experts in bone and joint radiology, our radiologists provide complete orthopedic evaluation, as well as diagnostic studies, including MRI, CT, Arthrography, Ultrasonography and Radiography (these services are offered by appointment.)

In addition, the Samuels Orthopaedic Immediate Care Center (iCare) is located at HJD and is New York City’s only walk-in clinic for urgent orthopaedic injuries.

Osteoporosis evaluation is performed using standard dual energy x-ray absorptometry (DEXA).
