London Osteoporosis Specialist Clinic
London Osteoporosis Specialist Clinic
Those that suffer from osteoporosis know all too well how careful they need to be to prevent fractures and breaks to their bones. However, it is quite shocking to know that many cases of osteoporosis can go undiagnosed for many years.
The problem with osteoporosis is that it slowly develops over several years and most people won’t know they suffer with it until they have a fall or an accident where they bump into something and it causes a bone fracture. A visit to their GP for a check-up or for some pain relief may result in them discovering that the condition is present.
Osteoporosis can cause bone fractures that can vary in severity but are most noticeable when they involve the hips, wrist and spine. Sometimes a bone can fracture from something as seemingly innocuous as a sneeze!
Going private for your diagnosis and treatment can be sensible
Because the NHS is consistently under pressure with long waiting lists for many patients waiting for treatment, it makes a lot of sense to seek out a private osteoporosis specialist, such as Dr Naveen Bhadauria who is a Consultant Rheumatologist currently practising from the prestigious, world-renowned clinic rooms of 25 Harley Street in London, Spire London East, BMI Cavell and King’s Oak.
While we in the UK are extremely lucky to have the medical help and support of the NHS, there is no doubt that the service is under strain and seeking out a private alternative could be a better option for osteoporosis sufferers.
Also, by seeking treatment for your osteoporosis through Dr Bhadauria at one of the clinics that are closest to where you live or work, you will be helping to reduce NHS waiting lists for those who cannot afford private treatment.
London osteoporosis clinic benefits
By seeking out the help of Dr Bhadauria at one of his clinics, you can get a quicker diagnosis and faster treatment of your osteoporosis. One of the biggest downsides of waiting for NHS treatment can be an average wait of 18 weeks or more before seeing a specialist.
By booking a consultation with Dr Bhadauria, you will be diagnosed and treated much quicker. But on top of this, you will also be able to access the very latest innovative healthcare treatments and techniques that may not be available to you through the NHS.
This means that you will be able to have a much more effective treatment that is personalised to meet your individual needs. It can also mean you can manage your condition much quicker and ensure your comfort much sooner.
Personalised treatment and care
When going through traditional treatments for osteoporosis with the NHS, it is not unusual for you to see a different set of doctors or nurses each time you need to attend an appointment. But when under the care of Dr Bhadauria, you will see the same familiar, friendly faces each time you need to see us.
It can be very reassuring to see the same care team at each visit and means that we will be completely up to speed with your individual case and treatment plan.
Long term management of osteoporosis
Once you have been diagnosed with osteoporosis, you will want to minimise your risk of hip fractures, wrist fractures and spinal fractures. Working with Dr Bhadauria and his team, you will be well taken care of for your long term osteoporosis management.
As well as some lifestyle guidance where our team can advise you of some simple changes you can make to your home and environment to reduce your risk of trips, bumps, slips and falls, you will also receive ongoing medical care based on the results of your DEXA scan and other diagnostic results.
Your treatment plan will depend on many factors such as your age, sex and medical record. One of the most effective medications that are prescribed to treat osteoporosis is called Bisphosphonates. These medications work to slow the rate of progression of osteoporosis, and you may be given Bisphosphonates in the form of injections or tablets.
Depending on your diagnosis, you may benefit from supplementing your diet with Vitamin D and calcium to help bone strength and healthy new bone growth. You may also be prescribed hormonal treatments that can help slow your progression and boost the production of new bone cells.
Should you suffer a bone fracture, our team will be able to aid in your recovery with the appropriate treatment, such as painkillers, Tens machine treatments and home recovery advice. While you are recovering from a fracture, you will need to continue your ongoing treatment plan to help reduce further fracture risks.
