Endocrinology

Medpark International Hospital provides, to all who suffer from different endocrine disorders, a complete medical circuit through a comprehensive program of diagnosis and treatment that include: 
specialized consultations, medical tests, ultrasound, thyroid punctures, surgical interventions, treatment and monitoring.

Endocrinology is the branch of medicine that studies the endocrine system and hormone disorders associated with it. The 7 human endocrine glands produce hormones that drive most basic functions of the body. Food nutrient metabolism, maintenance of blood glucose levels, blood pressure, ionic balance, energy production, functioning of reproductive and sexual system, bone and skin health, growth and harmonious development – everything is under control of the endocrine system. Hormonal dysfunction can lead to many diseases, including diabetes, obesity, thyroid disease, osteoporosis, infertility.

Medpark International Hospital offers endocrinologist services, personalized through a multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach, that integrates conservative medicine, surgery, imaging, laboratory investigations, all in one center.
