Endocrinology

Too much or too little of a certain hormone can have effects throughout the body and cause various endocrine disorders. Although many endocrine disorders that affect adults can affect children, the disorders may produce different symptoms in children.

UT Southwestern Medical Center provides all pediatric endocrinology services at Children's Medical Center Dallas.

The Children's Endocrinology Center is a full-service outpatient facility that offers state-of-the-art diagnosis, treatment, and management of endocrine disorders.

Common disorders include:

  • Childhood diabetes
  • Growth
  • Rickets
  • Thyroid
  • Other endocrine-based conditions

The Center’s specialized clinical staff includes board-certified pediatric endocrinologists, advanced-practice nurses, certified diabetes educators, registered nurses, registered/licensed dietitians, social workers, and pharmacists.

The Center serves a diverse population of children ranging from birth to 18 years of age, residing in North Central Texas and the surrounding areas. Children in the counties of far North Central Texas can also be seen at Children's Medical Center at Legacy and the Children's Specialty Care Center in Southlake.

Each year, we diagnose and treat 250 to 275 new diabetic patients and have approximately 12,000 to 13,000 outpatient clinic visits for diabetes and other endocrine-related conditions. Working together, our team provides comprehensive and compassionate care for all pediatric endocrinology patients.
