About

Bio

Dr Hinshaw has 25 years experience in ObG and 15 years of intensive experience in the management of menopause and osteoporosis. His education and degrees are from Duke, Stanford, and Union University (Albany). He is a board-certified fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, a long-time member of the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research, and former medical director of an osteoporosis research institute in Florida. He specializes in personalized assessments of current or recommended management plans for the prevention of fragility fractures and advocates limiting medical therapy for this risk to persons who can be scientifically and statistically proved to need the benefits of such treatment. He is available for counseling regarding the rare but devastating side effects of some treatments, including osteonecrosis of the jaw and the atypical leg and other bone fractures resulting for medication-induced bone brittleness.
