The center provides consultation to all forms of thyroid disease. One area of special interest is the management of thyroid nodules and management of thyroid disease in pregnancy. Not all thyroid nodules require surgical management. We will assess the nodules with ultrasound, thyroid function tests and fine needle aspiration to decide treatment.

We offer medical consultations for patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC).

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH)
If not treated properly, patients with CAH end up short on height. The dose of steroids needs to be titrated based on biochemical values, auxology and clinical parameters. Our endocrinologists will help you do just that.
