Welcome to Kisholoy Children's Hospital
Endocrinology is a medical subspecialty that deals with disorders of glands in the human body. In children and teenagers, these glands are particularly important as they produce hormones necessary for optimal growth, puberty development and general well being.
Problems seen by endocrinologists are quite different from those commonly seen by endocrinologists who care for adults. Our endocrinologist cares for your child in a setting that is appropriate for children and teens, together with nurses, diabetes educators and nutritionists who are attuned to their special needs.
We offer a full range of diagnostic, treatment and management services for the newborn through childhood and adolescence into early adulthood.
