Our System offers state-of-the-art diagnostic capabilities and advanced
treatment options for a wide range of endocrine diseases and disorders.
The endocrine system is a complex collection of hormone-producing glands
that control basic body functions such as metabolism, growth and sexual
development. The amount of hormones produced by each gland is carefully
balanced. Too much or too little of a certain hormone can have effects
throughout the body and cause various endocrine disorders. Many of the
hormones produced by the endocrine glands interact with each other to
maintain this delicate balance.
Endocrine diseases include type 1 diabetes, hypoglycemia, reproductive
disorders, thyroid disorders, parathyroid disorders, pituitary disorders,
pancreas disorders and adrenal gland disorders.
