Endocrinology

Endocrinology

Experienced team of dedicated endocrinologists

The body’s endocrine system is complex. There are a number of components, and a number of ways each one might fail to work as expected.

For example, you might not produce enough of one hormone, or too much of another; your body may produce the right amount of a hormone, but not know where to send it. Understanding this system and its variables, and knowing how to counteract or prevent these issues arising is the job of the endocrinologist.

London Medical are pleased to have a team of passionate, dedicated, and expert endocrinologists, each striving to develop the field, and provide patients with the highest levels of care and service.

Our centre also provides continuity of endocrine care, supporting patients from infancy to young adulthood. This continuity of treatment facilitates age appropriate care and smooth transition for those patients with chronic conditions.
