St. Vincent Subspecialty Clinic at the Center for Children has specialized treatment for endocrinology. We emphasize self-management through education. We know that some of these children may be living and growing-up with a chronic condition, but having a higher if not normal quality of life is possible.
At the Center for Children we stress family-centered care because we know when one member is sick it affects the whole family. And when you have a concern after hours, our endocrinologists are on call. For all ages, newborn through the teenage years, our strength lies in diagnosing complex endocrine problems and identifying progressive therapies and treatments that are manageable for your child and the family.
Endocrine disorders are often related to hormone imbalances that affect bodily functions and growth and development. We treat all types of endocrine conditions including:
- Diabetes (Type 1, Type 2)
- Growth disorders and genetic syndromes
- Early or late puberty in boys and girls
- Pituitary, thyroid and adrenal disorders
- Lipid disorders (high cholesterol and triglycerides)
- Vitamin D deficiency
- Childhood weight management
Appointments, by referral, are accepted by calling 812.485.7425 or 877.589.9858.
