Osteogenesis Imperfecta

Although there is no cure for osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bone disease), our goal at Jefferson is to prevent deformity and fracture, allowing you to function as independently as possible.

As a Center of Excellence for Bones and Joints and consistently ranked among the best in the nation for Orthopedics and Rehabilitation Medicine by U.S.News & World Report, Jefferson's multidisciplinary team of orthopedists, physiatrists (rehabilitation physicians), therapists, psychiatrists and radiologists can provide a full spectrum of surgical and nonsurgical care for your osteogenesis imperfecta.

For related spinal problems, our orthopedic surgeons are considered pioneers in the development of minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS), which helps to reduce the risk of infection, decrease pain, reduce blood loss and facilitate faster recovery in patients.

Osteogenesis imperfecta is a progressive condition that needs life-long management to prevent deformity and complications. Outpatient consultation and rehabilitation therapy services are available from our nationally recognized physiatrists and rehabilitation therapists. Our therapists practice an interdisciplinary team approach, working with referring physicians, physiatrists (rehabilitation physicians), nurse practitioners and case managers to ensure comprehensive quality services are delivered.
