In Memory Of...
We are deeply saddened to share with you the news that our friend and colleague, Douglas D. Robertson, Jr. MD, PhD, passed away this morning following a long battle with cancer.
Dr. Robertson joined Emory in 2010 as Associate Professor of Radiology, Orthopaedic Surgery, and Biomedical Engineering. He brought tremendous expertise to our Division of Musculoskeletal Imaging, both clinically and through his innovative research in cartilage and bone disease.
Most importantly, Doug was an inspiring human being. His infectious enthusiasm for his work, his passion for mentoring junior faculty, and his spirit of generosity will live on with all who had the opportunity to work with him.
Emory Faculty and Staff Assistance Program staff will be available onsite at the Emory Orthopaedic & Spine Center at Executive Park later this week to provide grief counseling and support for Doug’s work team. We will follow up with information on services as soon as these become available.
