Endocrinology and the Joslin Diabetes Center
At New England Baptist Hospital, our highly experienced clinical endocrinologists care for patients with hormonal and glandular disorders. These specialists treat a range of conditions, including diabetes, overactive and underactive thyroids, thyroid nodules, overactive parathyroid glands, and osteoporosis.
NEBH also partners with Joslin Diabetes Center who provides inpatient consultative services for patients with diabetes mellitus. These diabetes specialists coordinate the patient’s care with the doctors, nurses and staff to optimize diabetes management during hospitalization. These experts are also available for outpatient consultation at the Joslin Diabetes Center.
Many of the endocrinology specialists at NEBH are closely involved in clinical research, including multiple trials for diabetic medications and other related treatments. Participating in trials and education helps these endocrinologists stay abreast of advancements in their field and broadens the scope of endocrinology capabilities at New England Baptist Hospital.
NEBH endocrinologists are highly specialized in the treatment of osteoporosis, a bone deteriorating disease often associated with a decreased production in hormones. These endocrinologists provide diagnostic, treatment, and prevention services, as well as educational and dietary information.
