Endocrinology, Diabetes and Bone Disease

The Hilda and J. Lester Gabrilove Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Bone Disease provides the highest quality care to patients and is at the forefront of research on endocrine diseases and diabetes. This report highlights the work of our physicians and scientists in the following areas:

  • Cutting-edge research that is reshaping our understanding of thyroid diseases and setting the stage for long-overdue new therapies in areas like Graves’ disease and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
  • Characterizing the complexity of the type 2 diabetes patient population by parsing the electronic medical records and genotype data of more than 11,000 patients included in Mount Sinai’s massive data warehouse
  • A study on the prevalence of primary aldosteronism in an urban hypertensive population that found a much lower prevalence of PA than other studies but confirmed PA screening is essential for patients with resistant hypertension
  • The opening of the Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery in Manhattan, among the first of its kind in the country and the first in the New York metropolitan area affiliated with a major academic medical center
