Department of Endocrinology
Endocrinology is the science of endocrine glands (pituitary, thyroid, adrenal, pancreas, gonads, parathyroid gland, and adipose tissue) and their secretions called as hormones. Hormones largely attribute to a person’s deficiency, excess or resistance to hormones lead to varied manifestations affecting these personality traits.
The Endocrinology department at Queen's NRI Hospital offers a broad range of services and treatments including diabetes treatment, treatment for thyroid disorders, growth abnormalities in children, pubertal disorders, hypogonadism in males and females, osteoporosis, pituitary disorders, adrenal disorders and adrenal gland disorder treatment, obesity management, hormone replacement therapy and common endocrine problems in women like polycystic ovarian disease and hirsutism.
The diagnosis and treatment of endocrine diseases are guided by laboratory tests to a greater extent than for most specialties. The department is equipped with state-of-the art facilities for hormone assay and endocrine stimulation and suppression tests. The availability of the 1.5 Tesla MRI and 16 slice CT scan helps in the accurate diagnosis of pituitary and adrenal disorders. Endocrine emergencies and Critical Care services are available round the Clock.
