We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
Our approach at Lakewood Regional Medical Center offers compassion and care to women seeking a diagnosis and treatment for their bone condition. Millions of women are at risk of developing diseases affecting their bones like osteoporosis, a weakening of the bones, and may not know they have it until they fracture a bone. If you have osteoporosis, early detection and a personalized treatment plan are essential to maintaining your bone health.
Risk factors for bone conditions such as osteoporosis include:
Women past menopause or who went through menopause before age 45
White or Asian women
Women with a small or thin frame
Family history of osteoporosis
History of heavy smoking or drinking
Lack of physical activity
Diet with low calcium
History of non-traumatic fractures as an adult
