Providing treatment for diseases of the thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands, BMC surgeons possess a high level of expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders within the endocrine system – a collection of glands responsible for producing hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, and tissue function, among other things. Working in collaboration with colleagues from endocrinology, diabetes and nutrition, gastroenterology, and radiation oncology, a multidisciplinary approach to care for patients is provided.
Treatments & Services
Adrenal vein catheterizations can be done as part of the work up for the evaluation of primary aldosteronism. These are done under the direction of an endocrinologist and are performed at Boston Medical Center’s Interventional Radiology department by skilled radiologists.
The Bone Health Care Clinic focuses on the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis along with other metabolic bone disorders, including rickets, osteomalacia, hypoparathyroidism, hyperparathyroidism, oncogenic osteomalacia, and acquired and inherited disorders of calcium, vitamin D, phosphate, bone metabolism, and ehlers-danlos syndrome.
The clinic’s state-of-the-art scanning equipment uses very low dose x-ray and allows the staff to make an immediate assessment of a patient’s bone status.
