Paediatric endocrinology

What we do

King’s provides a regional service that diagnoses and manages endocrine (hormonal) conditions in children, such as growth and puberty disorders. It is also part of the pituitary multidisciplinary team which carries our pituitary surgery.

We see most children as outpatients, both at King’s and in several regional outreach clinics, from Woolwich in London to as far afield as Hastings in East Sussex.
