Erik A. Imel, MD
Associate Professor of Medicine
Dr. Imel's clinical and research interests include pediatric metabolic bone and mineral disorders, especially hypophosphatemic disorders, calcium disorders, and disorders of low bone density. After completing his medical degree at the University of Cincinnati, Dr. Imel engaged in a combined internal medicine and pediatrics residency program at the University of Rochester. Then he completed combined training in both pediatric and adult endocrinology, with a special focus on metabolic bone and mineral disorders. He is engaged at the national level with the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research, the Endocrine Society and the Pediatric Endocrine Society. Dr. Imel's clinical and research interests include pediatric metabolic bone and mineral disorders, especially hypophosphatemic disorders, calcium disorders, and disorders of low bone density. As a Regenstrief Institute Affiliate Scientist, he also conducts research into "real-world" application and effects of osteoporosis treatment in clinical populations. Dr. Imel also sees patients as adolescents and young adults in his adult endocrinology clinic for bone and mineral disorders and also other endocrine disorders such as congenital adrenal hyperplasia, Turner syndrome, hypopituitarism and McCune-Albright syndrome.
