A unit of Tanvir Hospital

Our Pediatric endocrinologists are physicians who have special training and expertise in the care of children and adolescents with hormone disorders. Hormones are chemical signals secreted by various glands that travel to target tissues through the bloodstream.


Pediatric endocrinology is a "subspecialty" of pediatrics that deals with a defined system within the body and a limited number of conditions. It requires a depth of knowledge beyond what general practitioners commonly attain for those conditions. Pediatric endocrinologists bring their knowledge and experience to the patients and families that they encounter, which complements the care provided by the pediatrician or family physician.
