Endocrinologists diagnose, treat, and manage disorders relating to the endocrine glands, but problems with the adult endocrine system differ greatly from the same disorders in children. This is because children are still developing, growing, and maturing physiologically while adults are not.
Pediatric endocrinologists are pediatricians who know that children have special needs relating to growth and development, and those needs include the impact of pediatric endocrine disorders on a child's physical and emotional well being.
When your child is sick, you want only the best care available. It’s an emotional experience for both the child and the parents, which is why Dignity Health’s pediatric endocrinology doctors provide the most compassionate, expert care for the entire family.
Care from expert pediatric endocrinologists is crucial for children and adolescents to help address complex medical concerns such as pediatric type 1 or 2 diabetes, obesity, growth, and puberty disorders, and thyroid or adrenal gland disorders.
