What is an endocrinologist?
An endocrinologist is a specialist that diagnoses and treats conditions of the endocrine system, which includes the adrenal gland, pancreas, reproductive organs and thyroid.
These glands and organs produce hormones that regulate activity in the body. The hormones are responsible for a number of functions, including, but not limited to:
- Growth and development
- Sexual function
- Tissue function
Types of endocrine disorders we treat
Our endocrinology specialists treat a wide range of conditions, including:
The adrenal glands are located on top of the kidneys and are responsible for producing important hormones, like cortisol and sex hormones. Adrenal disorders we treat include:
- Addison's disease
- Adrenal crisis
- Adrenal gland disorder
- Adrenal insufficiency
- Adrenal tumor
- Cushing's syndrome
If an endocrine cancer, such as thyroid cancer, is detected, our doctors will provide you with expert, compassionate cancer care. Additionally, through our affiliation with Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute, we are able to connect patients to some of Greater Denver’s top oncology specialists who treat endocrine cancers, such as:
- Adrenocortical carcinoma
- Anaplastic thyroid cancer

- Medullary thyroid cancer
- Papillary thyroid cancer

Growth disorders in children
Parents sometimes feel concerned that their child is not developing at the rate of his or her peers. Though all children do not grow at the same pace, a slow growth and development rate could be due to a growth disorder.
If a growth disorder is suspected, our pediatric endocrinologists perform a variety of tests to determine whether or not a growth disorder is present. If one is detected, we will educate you about the condition and possible treatment options, so you can make informed decisions about your child’s health.
The pancreas is a gland that regulates blood sugar. It is located deep in the abdomen and is a critical part of the digestive system. When the pancreas does not function properly, it can result in conditions such as:
- Type I diabetes
- Type II diabetes
The thyroid gland, located in the neck, produces hormones that affect your metabolism. There are many types of thyroid disorders that stem from an underactive or overactive thyroid. These include:
Types of specialized endocrine services we offer
In addition to treating the above mentioned conditions, we offer specialized endocrinology services, including:
Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when your body doesn’t respond properly to insulin, the hormone that helps glucose (sugar) get into the body’s cells. We offer personalized diabetes care—from testing through ongoing support—and are here to help you manage the disease.
A hormonal imbalance can disrupt your body’s function. Our endocrinologists provide advanced treatments to help your body restore its natural hormone balance.
If there is a problem with the endocrine system’s reproductive hormones, you may find it is difficult for you and your partner to get pregnant. Our endocrinologists will help determine if a hormonal issue is affecting reproduction. If a problem is detected, we can offer a variety of treatments to increase fertility.
