Beginning in the mid-1970s, Dr. Stewart led a successful and extensive career as a general internist. He played a significant role in enhancing medical care in and around Durham, NC. However, Dr. Stewart recognized that osteoporosis frequently went undiagnosed. He saw how the lives of victims of osteoporosis were diminished or shortened by bones easily damaged and broken. He gradually became concerned with improving the lives of those affected by osteoporosis, and this special interest spurred Dr. Stewart to establish the Bone Health Division, a mobile DXA osteoporosis diagnostic lab.

In 2012, Dr. Stewart joined EmergeOrtho, formerly Triangle Orthopaedics and helped launch the Bone Health Division. He is able to work closely and collaboratively with the physicians of the Rheumatology Division as well as numerous physicians of the Orthopaedics Division. The mobile DXA lab travels to more than a dozen locations in the Triangle, providing significant access to bone density evaluation and diagnosis. On a daily basis, Dr. Stewart strives to help North Carolinians age gracefully...and healthfully.

Dr. Stewart's wife, Ruth Stewart, is his RN and has been working by Dr. Stewart's side his entire medical career. She has been instrumental in establishing the Bone Health Division. Ruth schedules patient appoitments, confirms insurance coverage, and discusses treatment options with patients.
