Free bone mineral density check-up at KMC Hospital

MANGALORE: KMC Hospital Attavar will conduct a two-day free bone mineral density check-up, peripheral neuropathic screening and consultation by doctors from January 23.

Eminent orthopaedic surgeons Dr Surendra Kamath, Dr K R Kamath and Dr Amarnath Savur of KMC Hospitals will examine patients during the camp.

According to a press release from chief operating officer (COO) Dr Sunil Deshpande, the advantage of this Bone Mineral Density (BMD) investigation is that no ionizing radiation is required.

Dr Deshpande said, “The aim of providing BMD test free is to enable people, poor and rich, to know their bone mineral density and have an understanding at the earliest stage”.

People can utilise the opportunity by walking into the clinic from 10 am to 5 pm. A total of 150 patients can be accommodated in the camp per day.

For more details patients can contact (0824) 2445858 extn:5203.
