Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes
At The Hall Family Center for Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes at Mount Sinai, we are at the forefront of clinical care, education, and research for endocrine disorders and diabetes. We offer state-of-the art and family-centered care to infants and children for managing complex conditions such as growth and puberty disorders, obesity, diabetes and difference of sexual development. We are a designated site for the New York State Newborn Screening Program for thyroid disease and congenital adrenal hyperplasia.
Our experts are highly skilled in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of conditions including:
- Growth disorders
- Congenital adrenal hyperplasia and adrenal diseases
- Sexual development differences
- Bone disease and calcium metabolism conditions
- Thyroid disorders
- Neuroendocrine disorders
- Endocrine tumors and syndromes
- Transgender care
Our Multidisciplinary Approach
We offer a team approach that brings together endocrinologists, nurse practitioners, nutritionists, social workers, exercise physiologists, nurse educators and child life specialists. In addition, we collaborate with Mount Sinai specialists in surgery, nuclear medicine, neuroradiology, radiology, genetics, reproductive medicine, and other pediatric subspecialists. Young adulthood can be an exciting but sometimes challenging time for patients. We provide a smooth and seamless transition from pediatric to adult care.
How to Reach Us
Our doctors are available by phone, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week to answer urgent questions from patients, families, and referring physicians. To make an appointment or to learn more, call us at 212-241-6936.
Commitment to Research and Teaching
As part of a major health care system, Mount Sinai Health System, we are a teaching and researching facility as well. Our pediatric endocrinology specialists conduct research to offer new ways to help our young patients. Our basic science research provides insights that can be translated to the clinical care of children. We focus on obesity, growth, thyroid disease, diabetes and metabolism, and adrenal steroid disorders. Our physicians regularly contribute to peer-reviewed publications and present findings at national and international meetings. We are also training tomorrow’s pediatric specialists. Graduates of our Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-approved fellowship program are eligible to apply for board certification in pediatric endocrinology.
How You Can Help
The Hall Family Center at Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital began through generous gifts from George E. Hall, inspired by his niece, Emma, a patient at our Center of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes. Hall established the George E.
