Giancarlo Rastelli , M.D.Dr. Rastelli obtained her MD degree at the University of Verona, Italy, in 1991, and shortly thereafter she moved to Washington University for her residency in internal medicine, and then a fellowship in Women’s Health from the Divisions of Bone and Mineral Diseases and Oncology.  While her current primary affiliation is with the Division of Oncology, she has continued to pursue her interest in women’s bone health.  She is a Certified Bone Densitometrist and currently focuses on bone health in women with breast cancer, and on post-transplant osteoporosis.
