The staff were friendly and incredibly well informed. They talked me through my different options and the scan itself was incredibly professional and efficient. It took about 15 minutes and got my results within about 5 minutes afterwards.

Sam R.

My initial enquiry was dealt with my both thoroughly & efficiently. Less than 24 hours later I was in for my scan. The facility itself looks great, akin more to a boutique hotel foyer than a medical clinic.

Chris R.

The whole experience was first class, I was greeted by staff, made to feel at ease and was fully informed about how the scan was to be conducted and the information it would produce. All my pre-scan questions were answered as a result.

What is a DEXA scan, and why is it important for bone health?

A DEXA (Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) scan is a specialised X-ray test that measures bone mineral density (BMD), helping to diagnose osteoporosis or assess your risk of developing osteoporotic fractures. It's a crucial step in understanding and managing your bone health.

How is the DexaStrong clinic different when it comes to bone health assessments?

At DexaStrong, we provide a comprehensive approach to bone health. Our clinic offers not only DEXA scans but also consultations with bone health specialists, bone turnover marker testing, and other advanced assessments like Vertebral Fracture Assessment and Trabecular Bone Scoring, all within a single visit in many cases.

How quickly can I get an appointment for a bone density assessment?

We aim to provide appointments within two weeks of your request, ensuring timely evaluation and action on your bone health concerns. We can look at quicker appointments, if required, simply contact a member of the team.

Can I self-refer for a bone density assessment and consultation?

Yes, at DexaStrong, we allow self-referrals, enabling you to take charge of your bone health without needing a GP referral initially.

What will happen during my consultation with Dr. Afroze Abbas?

During your consultation, Dr. Abbas will review your medical history, discuss any symptoms or concerns you may have, interpret your scan results, and provide personalised advice and treatment recommendations. This may include dietary and lifestyle modifications, medication suggestions, and further testing if necessary.

What are Bone Turnover Markers and why are they important?

Bone Turnover Markers are substances measured in the blood to assess the rate of bone formation and resorption, aiding in the diagnosis and monitoring of metabolic bone diseases like osteoporosis.

They provide valuable insights into the effectiveness of treatments and can guide personalisation of your bone health management plan.

How does the Vertebral Fracture Assessment Scan contribute to my bone health evaluation?

The Vertebral Fracture Assessment (VFA) scan identifies any previous spinal fractures, which are crucial for understanding your risk profile for future fractures and influencing treatment advice and options.

This scan is performed alongside the DEXA scan, providing a more comprehensive view of your bone health with minimal additional radiation exposure.

What can I expect in terms of follow-up care?

Your follow-up care will be tailored to your needs and may include further consultations with Dr. Abbas, monitoring of your treatment effectiveness, and adjustments to your treatment plan to ensure optimal long-term management of your bone health.

How will my GP be involved in my care at DexaStrong?

With your consent, we will keep your GP informed of any tests, scans, or treatment plans undertaken at DEXAStrong to ensure continuity of care.

Can I transition between private and NHS care for my bone health management?

Absolutely, you have the choice to transition between private and NHS care at any stage of your journey.

Our clinic ensures seamless communication with your GP to facilitate this transition whenever you choose.
