As a woman you can lose up to 20% of your bone density during the five to seven years following menopause. Given the fact that we hit peak bone density by age 30, we can’t go back in time and build more, but we can take steps right now to hang onto what we have to keep our skeleton strong and resilient. This week we bring in two guests from the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City to explain how: Dr. Marci Goolsby and Dr. Alana Serota.
Marci Goolsby, MD, is Co-Director of the Women’s Sports Medicine Center at HSS. She is board certified in family medicine with a certificate of added qualification in sports medicine.
