What we do
We provide a regional service that diagnoses and manages endocrine (hormonal) conditions in children. This includes growth and puberty disorders.
We are 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.
