Our Story

As we age we often feel we are losing our edge in everything from athletic endeavors to brain function to the bedroom and the office.  It doesn’t have to be that way.  Elizabeth Yurth, MD has been treating patients 25-plus years in her orthopedic practice specializing in sports, spine, and regenerative medicine.  Frustrated that her patients weren’t getting the answers they needed to fully recover, gain back their health and be active, Dr. Yurth co-founded Boulder Longevity Institute (BLI) in 2006 to focus on Regenerative, Anti-Aging and Longevity medicine.
