Treating children with conditions of the endocrine system

The endocrine system comprises several major hormone-receiving and secreting glands. While hormones are primarily produced through these glands, the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs, pancreas and other organs can make and distribute hormones. The endocrine system is essential in keeping the body balanced and supporting proper growth and development. Endocrine problems develop if too much or too little of one or more hormones is present in the body, which can be harmful.

Our board-certified, fellowship-trained endocrinologists specialize in evaluating, diagnosing and treating children suffering from various endocrine system disorders. They perform various diagnostic tests to determine the origin of the condition and collaborate with a patient’s family, primary pediatrician and other pediatric specialists, if necessary, to establish the best treatment option for his or her unique needs.

Bringing expertise and compassion to pediatric patients, our dedicated pediatric endocrinologists manage the complex needs of children facing various endocrine issues, including:

  • Thyroidal dysfunctions.
  • Diabetes.
  • Obesity.
  • Precocious puberty.
  • Hypospadias and cryptorchidism.
  • Endocrine cancers.
