Panagiota Andreopoulou, MD

Dr. Panagiota (Penny) Andreopoulou, MD is an Attending Endocrinologist in the Department of Medicine at Hospital for Special Surgery and Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Endocrinology at the Weill Cornell Medical College. She was previously a member of the faculty in the Division of Endocrinology/Department of Medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center.

Her clinical and academic interests include osteoporosis, calcium and phosphate metabolism and metabolic bone disorders.

She is board-certified in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism. She is also a Certified Clinical Densitometrist.

Dr. Andreopoulou received her medical degree at the National University of Athens Medical School in Greece. Following her residency in internal medicine at New York Hospital of Queens/Weill Cornell Medical Center, Dr. Andreopoulou completed her endocrinology fellowship at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, where she trained at the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR). She conducted clinical/translational research at the Skeletal Clinical Studies Unit of the Craniofacial and Skeletal Diseases Branch/NIDCR. Her research focused on FGF23 (fibroblast growth factor 23) regulation, tumor-induced osteomalacia (TIO), hypoparathyroidism and polyostotic fibrous dysplasia (PFD). She worked on clinical research protocols evaluating the utility of selective venous sampling and functional imaging in the management of tumor-induced osteomalacia and the effects of the treatment of hypoparathyroidism with synthetic human PTH (parathyroid hormone) on bone parameters. These resulted in recent publications in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research (JBMR) on the “Selective Catheterization for the Localization of Phosphaturic Mesenchymal Tumors” and “Tumor localizing and biochemical response to cure in tumor-induced osteomalacia”.

She received the Endocrine Society Award in 2010 for her oral presentation on Tumor-Induced Osteomalacia. She is a member of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research, the Endocrine Society, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists and the American College of Physicians. She has also reviewed scientific papers for Endocrine Practice. Dr. Andreopoulou is fluent in English, French and Greek.

Dr. Andreopoulou produces and hosts a weekly radio broadcast for the Hellenic Public Radio. She reviews and discusses health and wellness news with guest physician experts as well as listeners that submit questions during the broadcast. The broadcast takes place every Saturday 12:30-1:00 pm at 91.5 FM (New York Public Radio) as well as streaming online at
