The Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism provides care for patients with a wide variety of disorders including diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis, disorders of the pituitary, thyroid, and adrenal glands, disorders of calcium metabolism, and disorders of female and male reproductive hormones. Our endocrinologists provide ongoing and consultative care at the 19 Bradhurst Avenue facility, where laboratory services are available on site.
Patients with insulin-dependent diabetes achieve better control of their disease with insulin pump therapy and continuous glucose monitoring. The program also focuses on evaluation of thyroid nodules and the treatment of thyroid cancer, with faculty conducting fine-needle aspiration of the thyroid under ultrasound guidance. Collaborating with the section of Nuclear Medicine at Westchester Medical Center, radioactive iodine therapy is administered to treat thyroid cancer.
A very active in-patient consultation service at Westchester Medical Center assists other services when patients have endocrine and metabolic disorders, especially diabetes mellitus; the service manages high glucose levels, which has become crucial in the care of cardiovascular, trauma, intensive care, and transplant patients.
