Dr. Valderrábano has a clinical and research focus on metabolic bone disease. During his time as a research fellow at Stanford University, he was awarded the Endocrine Society’s Outstanding Abstract award and the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research’s Young Investigator award for his work studying the links between bone health and hematopoiesis in older men. At University of Miami Dr. Valderrábano is the director of the endocrinology division’s bone clinic, which serves the South Florida community with a focus on osteoporosis and other metabolic bone diseases.
