Hospital Clínica Benidorm puts into action their medical campaign “HCB looks after your bones” promoting the prevention of Osteoporosis. The departments of Internal Medicine and Nuclear Medicine have organised a simple circuit where a specific test is performed to measure the level of calcium in the bones and a reading of the results is given by a specialist within the consultation.
The campaign promotes habits of prevention within the care of bones and the level of calcium in people who are over 50 and younger people with risk factors. The test that is carried out is a Bone Densitometry which allows us to measure the density of calcium that the bones have; it is a very useful test to detect osteoporosis early and also serves to evaluate the results of the people who are receiving treatment.
After the test, you can attend a specialist consultation to speak about your results and of the possible treatments or even exercises and healthy habits for the prevention of osteoporosis.
Simple medical campaign
People who are interested only have to call the general telephone number (96 585 38 50) and indicate that they wish to participate in the “HCB looks after your bones” Campaign, and they will be given an appointment for the test. Once the Densitometry test has been performed (it is a quick and easy procedure, it is neither painful nor requires hospitalisation), a direct appointment is given with the specialist to read the results.
The people who wish to know the level of calcium in their bones, or wish to know more about osteoporosis can do so, during the campaign, for a closed price of 40 Euros (Bone Densitometry Test and medical consultation). The code “HCB looks after your bones” should always be indicated in order to participate.
The campaign will be available during this month.
Hospital Clínica Benidorm, within their actions of Social Health Responsibility, have centred this campaign to osteoporosis (it is an illness of the metabolism of the bones which characterises through the decrease of the bone mass and the deterioration of the bone architecture, which lead to the fragility of the bone resulting in a consequent rise in the risk of fractures) this is the most common type of bone disease and it is easy to prevent, which is why everything possible should be carried out.
Hospital Clínica Benidorm incorporates into its own medical staff Dr. Rafael Villanueva, a specialist in Internal Medicine who, in this new stage at HCB, will be in charge of the General Medicine Service of HCB Calpe. Dr. Rafael Villanueva, practices a holistic approach to Medicine, positioning himself as an excellent General Practitioner with the experience…
