Our program is unique in that our bone densitometry (Dual Energy X-ray absorptiometry or DXA) program and reading of bone density are shared between endocrinology and radiology.

So many times when a low trauma fracture occurs, the underlying osteoporosis gets lost in the shuffle. Our goal is to provide evaluation and treatment in a partnership with our patients to help them make informed choices about osteoporosis.

The initiative to expand research in the Department of Orthopedics was driven by the vision of Dr. Bob D’Ambrosia and Dr. Evalina Burger and pivoted from the rich environment at the 4 CU campuses that include leading researchers in the bone and cartilage biology and skeletal tissue engineering fields. This was a main draw for six new faculty to join over the past 2 years, including Drs. Cheryl Ackert-Bicknell, Doug Adams, Vanessa Sherk, Sri Iyer, Larry Moreland and Mike Zuscik.
