Endocrine System Disorders

The endocrine system is made up of glands that act as a control system for many body processes. It produces hormones that help coordinate the functioning of body organs and tissues.

Endocrine disorders may occur when there is too much, too little, or no hormone present; the hormone made is abnormal; or the target tissue cannot use the hormone.

Endocrinologists and endocrine surgeons work closely together to provide the best possible care for patients with endocrine disorders.
