The Osteoporosis Program, which is co-directed by Ruban Dhaliwal, MD, MPH and Jennifer Kelly, DO, FACE, provides patients in Central and Northern New York a uniquely comprehensive approach to the evaluation and management of osteoporosis and other metabolic bone diseases including osteoporosis imperfecta and Paget's disease. Our disciplinary team consists of adult and pediatric endocrinologists, osteoporosis nurse educators, an exercise physiologist, and a state of the art bone density (DXA) machine with a dedicated certified DXA technician. A PhD research scientist provides valuable input into our evaluations of difficult cases.

Commitment to Education

The Osteoporosis Program is recognized by the National Osteoporosis Foundation External Icon as a member of the Professional Partners Network. The Network assists our local group to provide accurate, timely information to patients, family members, at-risk individuals and the general public. Our educational programs are designed to increase awareness and knowledge of osteoporosis prevention, diagnosis and treatment by conducting on and off site community outreach conferences, health fairs and employee wellness programs.
