From Silver to Gold for Niigata Rehabilitation Hospital

The hospital's Fracture Liaison Service (FLS) becomes the third Japanese FLS to achieve gold designation from Capture The Fracture. Congratulations!

Congratulations to Niigata Rehabilitation Hospital's FLS for achieving a gold! This hospital joined Capture the Fracture in May 2016 for the first time, and was awarded a silver for its services to prevent secondary fractures.

The FLS has been revaluated recently and is now officially recognized as a Gold FLS in Japan. The FLS is led by Dr. Yamamoto, and sees hip fracture patients, inpatients, outpatients, and vertebral fracture patients.

The service provides comprehensive post-fracture assessment and long-term follow up for patients over the course of two years so that they won’t have another fracture again.

Japan now has 17 FLS registered with CTF, among which 3 are gold FLS, 6 are silver FLS, and 7 are Bronze FLS (1 is under review).
