Adrienne Stewart, M.D. is board certified with 30 years of experience in her specialty.
For 29 of those years she has been in Colorado. Her office, Aesthetic Surgery & Dermatology of Cherry Creek, is conveniently located in Cherry Creek North. She loves what she does, her patients and going to work.
Making people look natural, like themselves. She has no trouble saying no when a procedure isn’t appropriate. Her goal is to make patients happy about their skin, from pimples to wrinkles as well as be aware of how environmental pollution and nutrition affect the skin.
The Backstory – Southern RootsThe apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Dr. Stewart’s mother is still a practicing dermatologist and so is her sister. Her late father was an OB/GYN. At age five, Adrienne declared to her grandmother that she wanted to study French and be a dermatologist. She earned her undergraduate degree from Newcomb College at Tulane University in New Orleans. Her medical degree is from Tulane and also where she completed her residency. Coming full circle – she was born at Charity Hospital, a teaching hospital, and she later trained there. She was Chief Resident for one year. (Neither Charity nor Newcomb was ever re-opened after Hurricane Katrina.)
Complimentary ConsultationFor all cosmetic treatments, Dr. Stewart makes assessments and reviews various options.
There are so many different devices and injectables from which to choose and she has the best and the latest. She caters to the patient, customizing for the best outcome, many times combining treatments.
Complete Body CenterAesthetic Surgery & Dermatology offers body treatments for non-invasive fat removal and skin tightening. Those include: CoolSculpting, Vanquish Ultra Shape and EMSCULPT which increases muscle and tones. Emsculpt can be used on buttocks, abdomen, arms and calves.
Dr. Stewart’s goal is to make each procedure as pain free as possible, applying topical numbing by itself as well as using Provox or Frozen C.
LasersDr. Stewart has all the latest technology in lasers and devices that are used to treat sun damage, aging skin, acne, blood vessels, wrinkles and scars.
Cosmetic Dermatology and InjectablesWhen it comes to injectables, experience is most important and Dr. Stewart has that experience.
She was privileged as a resident to have access to the Cosmetic Clinic at Tulane. Dr. Stewart taught injectables at University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Center. Currently, students and residents come to her office for training. She administers the injectables herself and these include: Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, Juvederm and Xeoman. These are Neurotoxins that work on preventing wrinkles from movement. Injectables also include fillers that fill lines and folds and volumize. These include Voluma, Juvederm, Restylane, Belatero, Vobella, Sculptra, Volure and Radiesse.
Continued TrainingYou must know anatomy for injectables. Dr. Stewart attends an annual anatomy lab, a cosmetic “boot camp.” She recently attended a Global Aesthetics meeting in Florida.
The Importance of Body ChecksThese checks should be done yearly and Dr. Stewart is very thorough. She even checks the scalp, bottom of the feet and between the toes. You can get skin cancer in your nails, she cautions. Dr. Stewart performs skin cancer surgery right in her office.
Skin Care ProductsAesthetic Surgery & Dermatology carries medical grade cosmeceuticals – products that boast studies showing effectiveness and improvement. These include Defenage, Sente, Isdin, Root of Skin, Skin Better Science, Alastin and U.SK Under Skin (her office is one of the few carrying this line in the United States).
Nikki Stephens Nikki has been a spa aesthetician for over 20 years with nine years in the medical aesthetics industry. She is an expert of non-surgical body contouring and a Master in Coolsculpting. She specializes in anti-aging skin rejuvenation with experience in a variety of lasers and radio frequency treatments. Nikki invites you to bring your skin concerns and questions for a consultation. She will create a custom plan for you based on how much downtime you can allow, your budget and more! Her goal is for you to achieve dermal health resulting in a healthier, younger-looking skin.
Audrey BolemaAudrey is a licensed medical aesthetician and laser technician. She graduated from the School of Medical and Botanical Aesthetics and is nationally accredited and certified in acne, laser rejuvenation, CoolSculpting body contouring, chemical peels, and also studied under JoElle Lee, who was Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s personal esthetician for years to gain her Multicultural Skin Certification. Audrey set aside her corporate software career and went into aesthetics out of a deep passion to help others achieve their unique goals, especially those battling acne. In her own quest (and struggles) to address her cystic acne, along with aging, hyperpigmentation, tone, texture she’s tried it all and weeded out what did and didn’t work. If you’ve also tried just about everything and are looking for results with trusted guidance, you’re already her favorite patient. Her approach includes using multiple modalities to achieve the best results along with providing guidance on an appropriate home care routine. She’s passionate about achieving results and educating her patients on expectations with a warm and friendly bedside manner. When not working she enjoys spending time with her family (daughter, husband, goldendoodle), reading, and staying active.

With Spring Training underway, Bank of Colorado is pleased to announce that, in the upcoming 2020 season, they will be the Official Bank of the Colorado Rockies Baseball Club.
This comes with news of Bank of Colorado’s partnership extension through 2022. The two family-owned companies have had a partnership since 2016, and each year since, their business and sponsorship dealings have grown organically. Bank of Colorado Co-Chairman, Chris Dinsdale, and Rockies Owner, Dick Monfort, have strong ties back to their roots in the world of agriculture.
“We couldn’t be more excited to extend and deepen our partnership with the Monfort family and the Colorado Rockies.” Commented Chris Dinsdale. “Their values are strongly aligned with ours and they’ve been a fantastic partner!”.
Bank of Colorado has branches in 49 locations across the state, and while the Rockies call Denver home, their fan base stretches all across Colorado.
Shawn Osthoff, President of Bank of Colorado stated, “It’s important for us to do business with folks you trust, and that have the community’s best interest at heart. As our business relationships have grown with the Rockies, so too has our investment in the organization. They’re a hometown team and we’re a hometown bank.”
Recently opening branches in Cherry Creek, Littleton and Boulder, Bank of Colorado is heavily investing in their physical presence in the highly competitive Denver Metro Market.
“When it comes to partnerships, you can’t have a better group of people than the Rockies and the Monfort Family,” said Jonathan Rogers, Denver Market President for Bank of Colorado. “We’re huge Rockies fans, and we’re thrilled to continue doing business with them.”
Beyond the involvement with the Colorado Rockies, Bank of Colorado has helped to finance the development of McGregor Square. When completed, it will house Bank of Colorado’s newest branch and ATM LIVE to add convenience to the surrounding businesses and downtown customers.
“We’re excited to take another next step in our long-standing tremendous relationship with the Dinsdale family and Bank of Colorado” said Dick Monfort, Chairman and CEO of the Rockies. “We’re thrilled to have Bank of Colorado as a partner of the Rockies for the long term and we look forward to having the bank as an integral partner at McGregor Square with their new location set to open in 2021.”
“Our bank is only as strong as the communities we serve,” Osthoff commented. “This partnership will allow us to communicate the benefits of a strong community bank to the larger Colorado community, and enable us to better help them reach their financial goals.

As electronic paperwork saddles physicians, it becomes even more difficult for them to screen, diagnose and prescribe effective treatments because of the limited time they have with patients. This becomes an even larger issue in senior care as families and physicians have a smaller window into the everyday life, health and habits of the patient or loved one. These parties count on senior living facilities to create the bigger picture of patient history and health. However, some communities aren’t adequately prepared to serve as this important liaison.
With this in mind, RENEW Saddle Rock developed the Collaborative Care Dashboard – a proprietary reporting evaluation that provides medical practitioners and families with greater transparency into the everyday health status of residents. The report enables primary care professionals to measure and understand each residents’ overall health trend and determine the best course of treatment that will give them the highest quality of life.
“The Collaborative Care Dashboard is presented to families and physicians on a quarterly basis in graphic form, helping them to identify trends in quality of life measures,” said Karen Doll, MSN CVNP-BC RENEW Management Clinical Liaison “Alongside the report, our staff has a menu of interventions that can be deployed to moderate the risk of unfavorable trends and help prevent small problems from becoming larger issues.”
Gathering research from accredited studies and assessment tools in geriatrics and dementia, the Collaborative Care Dashboard takes into account and measures against characteristics and tendencies of those suffering from dementia, including depression, cognition, nutrition, behavior and even happiness. Using these tools to measure current status, the report gives a trend of where patients stand in order to enable primary care professionals to measure and understand the disease progression, more easily determining the best course of treatment in real-time.
“This tool has been extremely helpful to validate and transform care for what would normally be subjective observations and concerns that easily fly under the radar because they aren’t clinically evident,” said Lee Tuchfarber, Chief Executive Officer.
“The Collaborative Care Dashboard is a useful tool to provide black and white data regarding trends that we are seeing in a resident related to their cognition, weight, fall risk & nutritional status. This creates a visual platform for families and physicians, which can open the door to other justifiable interventions such as home health services or possibly hospice,” said Erica Kowalczyk, Director of Wellness at Renew Saddle Rock Memory Care.
For example, falls are very common and can be detrimental for senior populations as they lead to hip fractures which have been proven to lead to higher mortality. However, if monitored through the Collaborative Care Dashboard findings, the increase in fall risk over time can be addressed through a concerted effort with risk avoidance interventions combined with balance and strength training.
“It is in our DNA to want to go further and be on the leading edge of healthcare, not to be mired in the status quo,” said Doll. “And this Collaborative Care Dashboard is one of many cutting-edge steps we’re taking to get there.”
RENEW Saddle Rock is transforming the typical senior living facility model through innovative approaches such as this – including a unique approach to multigenerational collaboration, strong medical oversight and sophisticated data collection to aid medical practitioners and families, all to create a new and desirable model of memory care.

At its first partnership meeting of 2020, Denver South Economic Development Partnership reminded the 100 government officials and business executives who came to listen of the continuing huge impact of aviation and aerospace on our state. Tom Brook, president and CEO, introduced the program.
Joe Rice, a well-known former state legislator, Glendale mayor, and Iraq war veteran, is government relations director of Lockheed Martin Space. He pointed out that Colorado is the number one state in per capita jobs in aerospace, with 52,860 primary space jobs and over 500 space-related companies, half of which are small businesses. He also pointed to Colorado’s NASA prime contracts that exceed $1 billion in value.
Today, Rice shared, only Russia and China are capable of human space flight, but Lockheed is working to change that with the Artemis program. The second phase, Artemis 2, is hoped to produce the first crewed flight by an American company as early as 2024.
Why go to Mars? Rice explained that the research that goes into the effort produces improvements in many other areas. He gave the example that mammogram technology came from the research that created the Hubbell Telescope.
Michael Fronapfel, director of planning and development at Centennial Airport came to explain the importance and economic impact of Centennial Airport, the second busiest general aviation airport in the United States.
In 2019 Centennial had 355,000 operations, including those of five separate very active flight schools. It also houses 125 individual businesses and 800 based aircraft. He presented data that showed that the total business revenue generated from economic activity related to Centennial Airport in 2018 was $2.1 billion.
One Centennial Airport-based company, Bye Aerospace, is developing the eFlyer, an electrically-powered aircraft that creates much less noise than traditional planes. Another, Boom Aerospace, is working on the XB-1 Overture that will fly 55 passengers at Mach 2.2 speed, making the trip from Los Angeles to Tokyo in seven hours and New York to London in 3.5 hours.
Other speakers from United Launch Alliance (ULA) and Oakman Aerospace, both based in south metro Denver, focused on the challenges of attracting and retaining high-quality employees.
ULA, which describes itself as a United States Department of Defense-funded business, employs 2,700 people in Colorado and at launch sites at Cape Canaveral, FL and Vandenberg Air Force Base, CA, plus manufacturing facilities in Alabama and Texas and government relations personnel in Washington, D.C. After conducting an employer brand audit, ULA “moved to a new recruitment process outsourcing provider in late 2019, who is accomplished at sourcing passive candidates.” In other words, if you have talent, they will come knocking on your door, regardless of where you may be working.

HCA Healthcare/HealthONE’s The Medical Center of Aurora (TMCA) announced the appointment of John Roque, MSN, RN, CCRN-K, as Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) for TMCA and Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital. He will begin his new role on February 3.
At TMCA, Roque will be the top nursing executive over TMCA/Spalding’s six campuses. He will oversee an array of services and programs including cardiovascular services, emergency services and TMCA’s Level 2 Trauma Center. He will also play a key role in the expansion of inpatient clinical services and surgical services occurring at Centennial Medical Plaza, which will open its doors to inpatients later this year.
Roque, a Registered Nurse, has been with HCA Healthcare for over 19 years, most recently serving as Associate Chief Nursing Officer at Swedish Medical Center. While at Swedish, he helped lead efforts that significantly reduced nursing turnover and contract labor. Roque also led a number of departments including the Emergency Department, Children’s Services, Critical Care Services, and oversaw initiatives that increased colleague and patient engagement scores. In 2019, Roque completed HCA Healthcare’s Executive Development Program and was named Most Outstanding CNO Associate in his class.
“John is a proven leader with a talent for building strong, successful teams,” said Ryan Simpson, Chief Executive Officer at The Medical Center of Aurora and Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital. “He has a passion for developing his nursing colleagues into strong leaders and a history of increasing patient satisfaction in the units he leads. John will be a wonderful addition to our Executive Team and I’m happy to welcome him to TMCA/Spalding and our affiliated campuses.”
Roque began his career with HCA Healthcare as an orthopedic nurse tech at Del Sol Medical Center in El Paso, Texas. After becoming a registered nurse, he continued his work in Orthopedics before moving into Critical Care areas such as the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and the Cardiovascular ICU (CVICU). While in the ICU, he held a Charge Nurse position and was later promoted to Director of the CVICU and then to Administrative Director of Critical Care Services.
Roque received his Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from the University of Texas El Paso and a Master’s in Nursing Administration and Management from Aspen University. He lives in the Denver area with his wife, also a nurse, and his two children.
“Today the Senate passed the USMCA, which is great news for Colorado’s workers, our agriculture industry, and our economy,” said Senator Gardner. “A great portion of our economy in Colorado is dependent on trade with Canada and Mexico. Colorado’s workforce stands to benefit from the USMCA, as roughly a quarter million jobs exist in the Centennial State because of our trade relationships with our North American neighbors. After months of unnecessary delay by the House of Representatives, I’m glad Congress has finally passed this critical agreement for more jobs, economic growth, and opportunity in Colorado.”
Colorado exported $2.7 billion in goods to Canada and Mexico in 2018, making them Colorado’s largest trading partners. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Colorado exported more than $165 million of electronic machinery, $74 million worth of beverages, $47 million of dairy products, $33 million of cereals, and $28 million of sugar and confectionary exports to Canada and Mexico in 2018. Colorado’s biggest export, beef, accounts for more than $880 million worth of goods shipped to Mexico and Canada.
