Comprehensive, multidisciplinary care at the Dayton Children’s endocrinology clinic

Endocrinology

Our physician-led team of health professionals provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary care to help diagnose, treat and manage disorders of the endocrine system. These can include growth disorders, thyroid diseases, adrenal diseases and pituitary gland disorders, among others.

In most cases, patients who are part of our endocrinology clinic receive outpatient care only, although on rare occasions a hospital stay is necessary. If testing, support services or an appointment with another specialist at Dayton Children’s is needed at any time, our team will help make the necessary arrangements. Our clinic also serves as a resource for primary care physicians and school nurses who need information about the patient’s condition and treatment plan.

Patients and families appreciate our thorough and personal approach, knowing they will see the same endocrinologist at each visit and can contact us by phone or email with questions or concerns.

Care for a wide range of endocrine conditions

The endocrinology clinic at Dayton Children’s provides care for patients who have an endocrine disorder other than Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. The clinic also cares for those who have been diagnosed with an unrelated condition that affects their endocrine system. For instance, some genetic disorders —such as Prader-Willi syndrome—are not directly related to the endocrine system, but they can cause hormonal changes that require medical attention.

Specialists at Dayton Children’s treat a wide range of endocrine conditions, including:

  • Adrenal disorders, such as congenital adrenal hyperplasia and Addison’s disease
  • Pituitary disorders
  • Growth disorders, including short stature, growth hormone deficiency, SGA (small for gestational age) and failure to thrive
  • Disorders of sexual development, such as delayed and precocious puberty, gynecomastia, ambiguous genitalia and gonadal dysfunction
  • Polycystic ovarian disorder
  • Hyperinsulinism metabolic syndrome (pre-diabetes)
  • Diabetes insipidis
  • Thyroid disorders, including Graves’ disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and congenital hypothyroidism
  • Calcium disorders including vitamin D deficiency, hypoparathyroidism and hyperparathyroidism

Some of our patients have endocrine problems caused by cancer or cancer treatment. Our medical director, Paul R. Breyer, MD, sees these patients by appointment in the Dayton Children’s oncology clinic.
