Formerly Counties Manukau Health Birthing and Assessment (B & A)
The Bone Density Service works with adult patients who have recurrent falls or fragility fractures (minimal trauma fractures) as well as helps managing osteoporosis. Patients who are 65 years and older triaged to falls and osteoporosis clinic are seen by a geriatrician for assessment and intervention (or a registrar supervised by a geriatrician).
Those triaged for BMD measurement alone are reported by a geriatrician.
Patients who are 65 years and younger will be triaged by an endocrinologist; their results will also be seen or be reported by an endocrinologist.
The clinics are located in the Assessment, Treatment and Rehabilitation (AT&R) Building (Building 31) at the southern end of the main hospital. Please see the parking information below for more detail.
