Center for Bone Health

Inpatient Consultation Service

In addition to our outpatient clinics, the Center for Bone Health also offers inpatient consultation services where experts in various specialties regularly hold clinical rounds for patients at risk for fragile bones.

Fragile Bone Initiative

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia recognizes the special needs of children with fragile bones and is committed to protecting them. In February 2011, CHOP implemented the Fragile Bones Initiative throughout the Hospital to identify patients at increased risk for fractures and emphasize safe handling precautions.
