Dr Richard Keen
Dr Richard Keen graduated from St Mary’s Hospital, London, UK. He trained in general rheumatology, but developed his specialised interest in osteoporosis whilst working at St Thomas’ Hospital, London. During this time he gained his PhD studying the genetic regulation of postmenopausal osteoporosis.
Currently, Dr Keen is the Director of the Metabolic Bone Disease Unit at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore. He also holds a senior lecturer appointment in rheumatology and metabolic bone diseases at the Institute of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Sciences, University College London. Dr Keen runs a specialist clinic for patients with osteoporosis in the Bone Health Centre. He works closely with the orthopaedic surgeons and radiologists, and believes that this integrated approach to care will ensure patients receive rapid access to the most appropriate management for their osteoporosis. He also sees patients with rarer metabolic bone diseases such as Paget’s disease, rickets, hyperparathyroidism, osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bone disease), and fibrous dysplasia
