Endocrinology encompasses the care and treatment of hormone-producing glands that regulate metabolism, growth and development, reproduction, sleep, mood and more. The body’s endocrine system includes the pancreas, the thyroid, parathyroid, pineal, hypothalamus, adrenal and pituitary glands, ovaries, testes and other organs which respond to, modify or metabolize hormones.
At St. Joseph Hospital, we specialize in the treatment of complex thyroid disorders and thyroid cancer, plus other endocrine and metabolism disorders. We invite you to schedule an appointment if you are looking for expert care close to home.
