Pediatric Endocrinology

Pediatric Endocrinology

The Division of Pediatric Endocrinology at The Herman & Walter Samuelson Children's Hospital at Sinai provides comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic services for a range of endocrine disorders—including diabetes—to patients from infancy through young adulthood.

Our team of pediatric endocrinologists, nurses, social workers and dietitians works with primary care physicians in addressing patient needs. Our experts can diagnose and treat complex endocrine conditions and inform patients and their families on how to best manage them. In keeping with our family-centered approach to care, we value the critical role parents play in keeping children healthy and consider them to be key members of our health care team. We make sure parents have access to all members of their child’s care team and are included in the decision-making process relating to care.
