Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes
The Division of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes at Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital is at the forefront of clinical care, education, and research for endocrine disorders and diabetes. We diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions at The Hall Family Center for Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes. Our doctors are available by phone, 24 hours per day/7 days per week to answer urgent questions from patients, families, and referring physicians.
We are a designated site for the New York State Newborn Screening Program for thyroid disease and congenital adrenal hyperplasia. We were again named a top hospital for children’s endocrinology and diabetes in 2018-19 by U.S. News and World Report.
Our multidisciplinary team includes physicians, psychologists, nurse practitioners, a nutritionist, and a social worker. In addition, we routinely collaborate with Mount Sinai specialists in surgery, nuclear medicine, neuroradiology, radiology, genetics, reproductive medicine, and other pediatric subspecialists. We see patients in the Kravis Children's Hospital, in our pediatric endocrinology office in the Annenberg building, and in our doctors’ practice through the Mount Sinai Downtown Network.
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 to new ways to help our young patients. We focus on 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.
Conditions We Treat
Our experts are committed to providing the highest quality care for childhood endocrine conditions. We diagnose and treat children of all ages from newborn to young adults who are experiencing growth, abnormalities of carbohydrate metabolism including low and high blood sugar, thyroid, pubertal, and adrenal disorders; bone disease and calcium metabolism conditions; and endocrine tumors and syndromes.
How You Can Help
The Hall Family Center at Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital began through generous gifts from George E.
