Children's Endocrinology

Children's Endocrinology

The endocrine system produces different chemicals called hormones. Hormones impact many aspects of our health and daily life such as starting puberty, regulating bone growth, or helping our bodies use the foods we eat.

The pediatric endocrinology program at Children's of Mississippi evaluates and treats children with physical growth and development concerns ranging from puberty to diabetes. Board-certified pediatric endocrinologists specialize in patients ages 17 and younger, but special consideration may include short-term arrangements for teens over 17.
