Welcome to the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, led by Division Chief Dr. Laura Alonso. As part of a world-class academic medical center, the division’s driving mission is to provide top-quality patient care, to advance cutting edge research, and to train the next generation of physician and scientist leaders in endocrinology. Our faculty are knowledgeable across the range of endocrine and hormonal disorders, including thyroid disorders and cancer, pituitary and adrenal disorders, calcium and bone disease, gender-affirming care, and male and female hormone imbalances.
In endocrinology, we provide the highest standard of care for patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus. We offer a multidisciplinary team approach for diabetes care with comprehensive case management and individualized treatment plans. Our expert team includes diabetologists, certified diabetes educators, registered dieticians, and an administrative staff who are experienced in intensive diabetes management, including insulin pump therapy.
