Endocrinology

Our Section provides consulting services to the children of southern Alberta for a wide range of endocrine conditions.

Referrals for conditions requiring complex investigations, intense endocrine follow up, or a multidisciplinary approach are seen at the Alberta Children’s Hospital, while other referrals may be seen by a community-based pediatric endocrinologist.
