Leading Diabetology & Endocrinology Care Hospitals In Mumbai
Endocrinology is a branch of medicine dealing with the endocrine system, its specific secretions called hormones and diseases affecting it. The speciality focuses primarily on organs which secrete hormones (pituitary, thyroid, adrenals, ovaries, testes and pancreas). Most common endocrine diseases are diabetes mellitus, thyroid disorders (hyper, hypothyroidism, thyroid cancer), metabolic bone disease (osteoporosis, rickets), sexual hormonal disorders (hypogonadism, polycystic ovarian syndrome). New, emerging diagnostic techniques and continuous research are being utilised for treatment of people with endocrine and metabolic disorders.
Fortis Hospitals, Mumbai Diabetology and Endocrinology Department offers comprehensive care across the spectrum of endocrine dysfunctions. Patients (adult and paediatric) have access to diagnostic assessment (thyroid function, diabetes testing), medical treatment (diabetes, goitre, hypothyroidism) minimally invasive procedures (adrenalectomy, thyroidectomy) surgical interventions (bariatric) and cancer treatment (tumours of adrenaline, pituitary, neuroendocrine). Most diseases like obesity, diabetes, thyroid-disorders are chronic conditions requiring lifelong care, hence pivotal to our therapeutic process is the psychosocial and mental wellbeing support, health education and a robust patient-physician relationship to enable a longer and better quality of life.
