Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center Faculty


The Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center is a welcomed step forward in meeting the increased health care needs of today's Veteran population. This new facility replaces the Denver facility of 670,000 square feet with a new state of the art campus of approximately 1.2 million square feet on 31 acres, providing many new services to Veterans.The new Aurora, Colorado location is ideally located on the southeast corner of the former Fitzsimons Army Base just off Interstate 225, immediately west of RTD's light rail station and neighboring Children's Hospital and the University of Colorado Anschutz Health Care Campus. 

In addition to the faculty and endoscopy nurses, the GI section has nurse practitioners and a physician assistant on the staff.  The endoscopy unit performs 4,800 procedures annually including upper endoscopy, colonoscopy, motility, EUS and ERCP.  In addition to teaching medical students, residents and fellows, the division is active in clinical, basic and translational research including studies of colon cancer prevention, inflammatory bowel disease, hepatitis C, and cirrhosis outcomes.
