The endocrinology program at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital offers comprehensive care for children ages 17 and younger with endocrine disorders. Endocrine conditions include hormonal disorders of major endocrine glands including the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, gonads and adrenal glands, and can affect the way a child grows and develops. Our team consists of physicians, nurses, dietitians and social workers who work closely with patients and caregivers at all stages of childhood, teen and young adult years to create an individualized treatment plan. We provide services for both inpatients and outpatients and support them from initial diagnosis to the transition to adult care.
In addition to our comprehensive care, we have access to pediatric specialists and subspecialists throughout our hospital and can provide a seamless transition for patients who need additional specialty care beyond our services.
