Endocrinology

I am an endocrinologist with particular interest in bone metabolism in people with cancer. I see both patients with benign metabolic bone diseases, such as osteoporosis and hyperparathyroidism, and bone disorders due to advanced cancer, such as hypercalcemia and metastatic bone disease. Much of my research has focused on rare complications of a subset of bone protective drugs known as antiresorptives. I have twice served on the National Comprehensive Cancer Care Network’s Bone Health in Cancer Care task force.

In addition to bone metabolism, I treat a large number of patients with diabetes. I intend to conduct future research on the long-term effects of adjuvant aromatase inhibitors on fracture risk in women with breast cancer and on thyroid cancer and metastatic bone disease.
