Why choose Ochsner Health for pediatric endocrinology care?
At Ochsner Health and Ochsner Hospital for Children, we are passionate about treating the whole child, not just the condition. Our compassionate team of specialists understands that children with endocrine disorders — problems related to the hormones — face not just physical but emotional challenges as well, and we’re dedicated to helping kids of all ages live their best lives. Our program is also certified by the American Diabetes Association, which means it meets the national organization’s high standards of care.
Working collaboratively, our experienced pediatric endocrinology team develops personalized treatment plans for every child, including those with pediatric diabetes and rare and complex conditions. Our team includes board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric endocrinologists, experienced nurse practitioners and endocrinology nurses, diabetes nurse educators, registered dietitians, psychologists, and social workers. Families can meet with every member of the team at multidisciplinary diabetes clinics that take place twice per month, allowing them to see multiple specialists in one visit.
