About the Division of Endocrinology
Cedars-Sinai's Division of Endocrinology serves patients diagnosed with hormone-related (endocrine system) illnesses. Patients receive comprehensive treatment in a medical setting noted for the compassion and understanding of its caring staff. Using leading-edge technology and the most current medical knowledge, our doctors, nurses, registered dietitians and health educators work to improve the lifestyles of patients who must often endure chronic conditions. Our services include:
Today more than 15.7 million people in the United States alone have diabetes. Cedars-Sinai is one of the few regional hospitals to dedicate an entire unit to diabetes. Our outpatient center has been recognized by the American Diabetes Association with a citation for high quality healthcare.
Neuroendocrine tumors affect neuroendocrine cells, which produce and secrete regulatory hormones and are present throughout the nervous and endocrine systems. The Carcinoid and Neuroendocrine Tumor Center at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center provides multidisciplinary team-based, state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic services for managing these tumors.
Cedars-Sinai specialists address metabolic dysfunction, abnormal body growth, sexual function and reproductive system disorders that can result when the pituitary gland fails to operate correctly. Recently, Cedars-Sinai's world-renowned Pituitary Center and Skull Base Institute joined forces. This integrated unit is the first to be created in the western United States. It brings together, not only the skills and knowledge of our doctors, but also the latest in high-tech equipment and research outcomes.
