- Comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic care for patients with diseases of the endocrine glands (especially the thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary and adrenal glands)
- Sonography (ultrasound) of the thyroid and parathyroid
- Indication of and ensuring a wide range of blood tests (to measure hormone levels)
- Testing and treatment of conditions associated with the overproduction or decreased production of certain hormones, cutaneous androgen disorders, disorders related to climacterium
Endocrinology is the branch of medicine dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of the endocrine glands. Among these glands are the adrenal glands, gonads, pituitary gland (hypophysis), thyroid, parathyroid and pancreas. Due to a possible failure of these glands, they produce either a small surplus of hormones or vice versa. Accordingly, symptoms arise from either an increase or decrease of their function.
