Dr. Jay Ginther, MD
I am a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon. My first experience in the operating room, seeing that Osteoporosis causes Fractures, was almost 40 years ago. My years operating on bones ruined by Osteoporosis have led to my understanding of Osteoporosis from a Bone Doc perspective. I care about Fractures! If you are going to prevent or recover from Osteoporosis, you need to know your enemy. If you learn enough and take relatively simple steps, you often CAN prevent or treat Osteoporosis successfully. You can prevent Fractures! My current practice is detecting, preventing and treating Osteoporosis at the Cedar Valley Bone Health Institute of Iowa. Established patients should contact us at info@cvbonehealth.com. We will try to respond within 24-48 hours.
