What We Treat

Endocrinology is the study of the endocrine system, which is a group of glands. This system makes hormones and controls basic body functions, such as metabolism, growth and sexual development. Your child's doctor may refer him to a specialist if he shows signs of having a condition that may affect his endocrine system.

Our pediatric specialists treat:

  • Adrenal disorders
  • Calcium and bone disorders 
  • Diabetes 
  • Disorders of puberty and sexual development 
  • Growth disorders 
  • Thyroid disorders

Services We Offer

Our team provides clinical, diagnostic and lab services for the evaluation and treatment of diabetes and other endocrine disorders.

Differences of sexual development

A dedicated case manager for the Differences of Sexual Development (DSD) Clinic provides coordinated care across specialties and serves as the primary contact for patients and families.

For more information, contact dsd@choa.org.

Innovative research

In conjunction with Emory University School of Medicine, our pediatric endocrinologists are committed to excellence and innovation in research. We have been involved extensively with local, national and international collaborative research endeavors. These efforts span the entire spectrum from observation to early disease recognition and prevention to treatment.

Our Unique Approach

Using technology to care for kids

Children's sees patients at a variety of locations, but if you don’t live near one of our clinics, we want to make sure you’re still getting care from a Children's specialist. Through our telemedicine program, we provide care for endocrinology conditions including adrenal disorders and growth disorders.
