description

  • The Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism activities include patient care, research and education. The Diabetes Center, in its 7th year of service, offers a multi‑disciplinary team approach, with comprehensive case management and development of an individualized treatment plan. The team is composed of diabetologists, a certified diabetes educator, a registered dietician and podiatrist. Opthalmologists are present on site to provide fundoscopic exams for diabetes. Our patient interests also include general endocrinology and reproductive endocrinology, including the treatment of menstrual irregularities, hirsutism, menopause, and osteoporosis. We offer specialty care in thyroid disease, with particular emphasis on thyroid cancer, and in the prevention of the recurrence of kidney stones. Should surgery be necessary for the treatment of an endocrine disorder, an endocrine surgeon is on site as part of the team.
