Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes

The endocrine system governs many aspects of your child’s health. Mount Sinai leads the way in clinical care, education, and research in pediatric endocrinology and diabetes. We are renowned for our outstanding newborn screening program for thyroid disease and congenital adrenal hyperplasia.

We work with you and your children to treat a wide variety of endocrine disorders your child may experience, including growth disorders, diabetes, and problems with the thyroid, puberty, and bone.

Our approach to endocrinological disorders and diabetes is advanced, individualized, multidisciplinary, and comprehensive. Our multidisciplinary team includes doctors, psychologists, a nurse practitioner, a nutritionist, and a social worker. We collaborate with pediatric specialists in surgery, nuclear medicine, neuroradiology, radiology, genetics, reproductive medicine, and other doctors specializing in caring for children.
