Overview

Endocrinology focuses on the endocrine system: the thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, ovaries, testes, adrenal, pituitary, and hypothalamus. These glands produce hormones that help control reproduction, metabolism, and growth and development. Our endocrinology practice—the largest north of Albany—diagnoses and treats most endocrine-related disorders, including diabetes, thyroid diseases, osteoporosis, calcium and parathyroid gland abnormalities, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and endocrine cancer. If you think you might need to see an endocrinologist, speak with your primary care provider and ask for a referral, if necessary

Some thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, and other endocrine-related conditions may require surgery. When that’s the case, we work closely with Saratoga Hospital’s endocrine surgeons to coordinate your care and help ensure the best possible outcomes. The Hospital’s surgeons are experienced in the most technologically advanced techniques. Whenever possible, these highly skilled physicians perform minimally invasive surgery to help shorten recovery time and minimize scar tissue.
