• Endocrinology

    The Division of Pediatric Endocrinology evaluates and treats disorders of the endocrine system in children, including growth problems, pubertal development, thyroid disorders and diabetes. Since these diseases can affect the lives of the entire family, counselors and specialists are also part of a team that helps children and families deal with every aspect of the disease.

    Some of the pediatric endocrine disorders we treat are: 

    • Diabetes mellitus
    • Growth disorders
    • Pituitary gland disorders
    • Thyroid disorders
    • Problems of calcium metabolism
    • Precocious and delayed puberty
    • Adrenal gland disorders
