The Bone and Mineral Metabolism Program at Children’s Hospital Colorado specializes in the evaluation and treatment of conditions that affect children’s bone health or create abnormal levels of minerals in the blood. This can include conditions like hypocalcemia, hypercalcemia, hypophosphatemia, hypoparathyroidism, parathyroid hormone-related disorders, low bone density, osteoporosis, vitamin D deficiency, and nutritional and genetic forms of rickets.

The program provides a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to care that includes experts from endocrinology, nephrology, nutrition and orthopedics. The healthcare providers are specifically trained to treat pediatric and adolescent patients. 

The organization creates a customized care plan for every child based on the expertise of many pediatric specialists. Moreover, the providers are not just interested in treating kids with methods that are currently available but also working to create new and better methods to achieve optimal bone health in children through research studies and clinical trials.
