Osteoporosis Test London

Gain a better understanding of your bone health and identify any risk factors for osteoporosis, helping you make informed decisions about your lifestyle and health.

Osteoporosis Risk Assessment on Harley Street

Our comprehensive package includes diagnostic tests and expert guidance from our skilled healthcare professionals to help you prevent, manage and treat bone-related issues such as osteoporosis. Comprising a DEXA scan to assess your bone density, and a consultation with an expert rheumatologist, we will create a personalised treatment and management plan based on your individual needs.

By taking advantage of our osteoporosis check-up, you can gain peace of mind and take proactive steps to protect your bones, leading to a healthier and more active lifestyle.


What is included in the package?

This bone health check-up includes:

  • DEXA scan
  • Follow-up consultation with Professor David Reid MBE

A DEXA scan uses low doses of X-ray to measure how dense your bones are, which can be used to diagnose osteoporosis. You will be sent a risk factor questionnaire to fill in prior to your scan, which will ascertain your risk of osteoporosis.

A follow-up consultation with our expert rheumatologist Professor David Reid MBE, will take place either virtually or in-person depending on your preference. Professor Reid will go through your results with you and discuss your risk factors due to lifestyle choices and other factors outside of your control. If required, a treatment plan will be created for you to help improve your bone health and slow the progression of osteoporosis.


What is included in the package?

What does it look for?

Primarily, this check-up is designed to look for osteoporosis, a condition that weakens bones, making them more prone to breaks and fractures. In many patients, it takes a broken bone to establish that they have osteoporosis, so this check-up aims to identify your risk or early signs, so that measures can be taken to prevent or slow the progression of the condition before any bones get broken.

Early diagnosis will enable patients to receive the correct treatment, which relieves symptoms and slows progression.

How much does an Osteoporosis Test cost?

Our comprehensive package costs £450, and this includes your consultation with Professor Reid as well as your advanced osteoporosis assessment and DEXA scan. This is a saving of £75 compared to booking the scan and the consultation separately.
