Personal Statement

I am an endocrinologist, with a specialized focus on osteoporosis and metabolic bone diseases, as well as general endocrinology. My particular interest lies in the maintenance and enhancement of bone health across the lifespan. My aim is to optimize bone health through comprehensive care and evidence-based interventions.

In addition to my clinical practice, I am actively involved in clinical research. My studies have primarily centered on assessing bone quality in individuals with osteoporotic fractures and those undergoing orthopedic procedures. My research has also focused on investigating the skeletal effects of glucocorticoids, and the relationship between diabetes and bone diseases.
