London Medical Endocrinology

Paediatric endocrinology

London Medical provides the most up-to-date procedures for patients – with clinics held by some of the UK’s most renowned specialists.

Expert paediatric endocrinology care for children and young people with hormone disorders.

Paediatric Endocrinology is the care and treatment of children and young people with hormone disorders. Hormones are the body’s chemical messengers. They travel in the blood to help the tissues or organs work effectively. Normally, the body keeps the hormones in a delicate balance. Hormone problems can affect a child’s growth or development at puberty and can have significant effects on a young person’s physical and emotional wellbeing.

London Medical offers specialist endocrinology care from renowned paediatric endocrinologists.  The consultants are supported by a team of specialist dieticians, clinical psychologists, and specialist nurses with experience and skills in treating and communicating with young people of all ages. 

The specialist endocrinology team at London Medical supports children with hormone disorders from infancy to young adulthood. Older teenagers will be introduced to the adult endocrinologists and specialist nurses and supported to ensure a smooth and comfortable transition.
