Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism

Our division provides medical services to patients with poor physical growth, disorders of sex development/maturation, and metabolic diseases caused by congenital/acquired endocrine and metabolic disorders. We provide optimal diagnosis and treatment to patients according to their life-stage, ranging from the fetal period through to young adulthood.

Medical services

We provide hormone replacement and suppression treatments, special nutritional management, and health and lifestyle education delivered by board-certified specialists in endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolic diseases, and fellows. We serve as a multidisciplinary team consisting of special nurses, dieticians, pharmacists, and doctors of other specialties.

Diagnosis and treatment policy

Diagnosis is made using appropriate, evidence-based tests and advanced testing technology. We provide a comprehensive diagnosis and determine the most suitable type of treatment that best fits the patient’s age and environment. We believe this approach is beneficial not only to improve the patient’s current wellbeing but also to ensure long-term health outcomes.
