We are one of the few centers in the Southeast offering specialized care for children with lipid disorders, thyroid disease, gender disorders, obesity, and osteogenesis imperfecta (a children’s bone disease).
A Team of Specialists
Your child’s endocrinologists work with a wide range of pediatric specialists -- from experts in kidney disease, urology, and cancer to psychologists, genetic counselors, gender care specialists, and more. We make sure your child gets complete care.
Expert Care for Children
Children who need hospitalization are cared for by teams that specialize in taking care of young patients and supporting families. This includes our pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), whose experts are skilled in providing compassionate, round-the-clock care to the youngest and most critically ill children. Our pediatric endocrinologists work closely with hospital-based team members to provide your child seamless care.
Follow Your Child's Journey
We help your child transition to adulthood. Our pediatric endocrinologists work collaboratively with specialists throughout Duke Health, so we make it easier for your older teen to transition to adult care and services.
Experts in Genetic Obesity Disorders
We are experts in evaluating and managing genetic obesity disorders, including Prader-Willi syndrome and other conditions that cause severe weight gain in early childhood. Our team includes a pediatric endocrinologist and nutritionists who work closely with sleep specialists, gastroenterologists, psychologists, and developmental pediatricians.
Access to the Latest Research
Our pediatric endocrinologists are also researchers. As an example, we were the first hospital to use insulin pumps for infants and toddlers with diabetes; we were also among the earliest to show the benefits of medicine in treating obese and prediabetic children.
