There are many different endocrine glands in the body such as pituitary,
thyroid, adrenal and pancreas. An abnormality in any of the functions
of these glands will produce an endocrine disorder or disease. An endocrinologist
specializes in treating patients with these disorders.
There is a collaborative effort to include patients of all ages at all
levels of care in any type of healthcare setting and everyone is involved
in the decision making. The families are able to maintain their control
on the treatment options and are considered essential in treatment options
and decisions relating to quality improvement, safety, education, policies
and research initiatives.
Some of our doctors and nurses are national and international leaders in

technological advances for blood glucose monitoring and insulin delivery
as well understanding the molecular mechanisms of endocrine disorders
especially in children with diabetes mellitus, hypoglycemia and early
onset obesity. This research will help us in developing new treatment
options for all our patients.
