Growth in Gaucher: Managing Bone Health

Dr. Heather A. Lau, MD, MS, Assistant Professor and Director of the Lysosomal Storage Disorders Program at New York University School of Medicine, discusses managing bone health for those who have Gaucher disease with an emphasis on the impact early intervention and treatment, particularly when introduced before or during puberty, has on bone development.

Dr. Lau’s presentation addresses the effect Gaucher disease has on bone structure in terms of platelet production, bone density, bone growth, as well as the development of bone lesions and other irreversible damage to the skeleton.
