The Pediatric Endocrine and Growth Center at Children’s Hospital Colorado provides comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for children with disorders of growth, puberty, thyroid function, adrenal function, calcium and phosphorus metabolism (including rickets), osteoporosis, and many other endocrine-related disorders. Over 5,000 visits to the Center are made by children from an eight-state surrounding area each year.
Outreach clinics have been established around the state and in Wyoming serving the needs of children in Colorado and Wyoming. We have also developed a telemedicine system to serve families in areas at a distance from Denver.
Collaborative clinical programs with other subspecialty departments at Children's Colorado are in place to provide endocrine support for children who have had bone marrow transplantation, brain tumors, AIDS, cystic fibrosis, asthma, and a variety of metabolic and genetic disorders, including glycogen storage disease, hypoglycemia, Turner syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, Klinefelter syndrome, polycystic ovarian syndrome and obesity-related disorders.
We are proud to have developed and implemented many multi-disciplinary clinics to bring multiple specialties together for a single patient visit. Our current clinics include:
- Neuro-oncology Clinic
- Turner syndrome
- Prader-Willi syndrome
- Klinefelter syndrome
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
- Thyroid Cancer
- Osteogenesis Imperfecta and others
