Endocrinology is the study of glands and the hormones they generate to help different body systems work together. Hormones affect how we grow and develop, how our blood delivers food energy throughout our body and much more.
Pediatric endocrinology provides consultative services for children and adolescents with hormone dysfunction, including problems of growth, puberty, thyroid, adrenal and calcium metabolism. Hormonal problems in children can be quite different than those affecting adults. Our pediatric providers have special training to treat these disorders in growing kids.
