Endocrinology

Endocrinology is a medical subspecialty that deals with disorders of glands in the human body. In children and teenagers, these glands are particularly important as they produce hormones necessary for optimal growth, puberty development and general well being. Problems seen by paediatric endocrinologists are quite different from those commonly seen by endocrinologists who care for adults. Our paediatric endocrinologists care for your child in a setting that is appropriate for children and teens, together with nurses, diabetes educators and nutritionists who are attuned to their special needs.

We offer diagnosis, treatment and management services for the newborn through childhood and adolescence into early adulthood. Our clinics serve as referral centres for hormone related conditions such as growth disorders, puberty disorders, diabetes, thyroid disorders, lipid disorders, pituitary and adrenal disorders.
