Special Programs and Centers
The Hall Family Center for Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes provides a variety of special treatment programs to meet your child’s needs. All of our endocrinology programs use a multidisciplinary approach, bringing together specialists from across The Mount Sinai Hospital who collaborate to offer an individualized treatment plan for your child.
- Diabetes. The Diabetes Team offers educational programs for patients and parents throughout the year. Programming includes diabetes pattern management, technology nights, and a diabetes college preparatory course. We coordinate care among school, home, and our diabetes team and provide psychological counseling for patients and families. Our diabetes nurse educator, nutritionist, and social worker are all available for frequent visits, and we are a site for Trial Net, which ensures access to the very latest in clinical care. We offer educational programming such as an annual college prep course, carbohydrate counting, insulin pump education nights, and a Mount Sinai co-sponsored day camp, the only diabetes education day camp in New York City, run by Camp Nejeda.
- Healthy Lifestyle Clinic. This is a weight management program for children and teens with obesity. We offer coordinated care amongst pediatric subspecialities to care for obesity-related health complications.
- Adrenoleukodystrophy Multidisciplinary Clinic. We use a team approach to treat this rare and complex inherited disorder that combines the insights of a pediatric endocrinologist, neurologist, geneticist, and genetic counselor with support from social work, nutrition, and physical therapy.
- Comprehensive Children’s Growth Center. We evaluate and treat growth disorders including growth hormone deficiency, small for gestational age, Turner syndrome, and many other hormonal and genetic disorders leading to growth delay/failure. Our state-of-the-art stimulation testing center offers child-friendly entertainment during testing. We also offer genetic testing, psychosocial support, and a nutritionist for assessment and management recommendations.
