Roomozumab (Evenity)

This osteoporosis therapy was released by the FDA in April 2019. It is administered for one year. It has brought a wonderful breakthrough to osteoporosis therapy.

Our metabolic bone and stone clinic is the first in the New Orleans Metro Area to prescribe Evenity at East Jefferson Hospital Infusion Center.

Our Practice:


New Orleans Nephrology Associates was founded in 1995. We are proud to serve the Greater New Orleans area including, Orleans, Jefferson, St. Bernard , and St. John the Baptist Parishes. Our clinic offices are located in Marrero, Metairie, LaPlace, Chalmette, and New Orleans East.   

We are a dedicated group of nephrologists striving to prevent the progression of kidney disease and provide chronic kidney disease and dialysis management.

In 2003, we added our Metabolic Bone and Stone Center addressing kidney stones prevention and management. In addition, we provide services for prevention and treatment for osteoporis and metabolic bone diseases. We also provide on-site bone densitometry  (DEXA) measurements and interpretations.
