Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism

Overview

The Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism at Tufts Medical Center is home to a team of exceptional endocrinologists, proud of our legacy of innovation and dedicated to providing the best patient care possible. Because the endocrine system controls many different body functions, endocrine dysfunction can contribute to an enormous range of illnesses affecting virtually every organ system of the body.

Our goal is to understand the basis of these diseases and the endocrine system through research, develop more effective treatments and provide the highest standards of care to improve the lives of patients with endocrine disorders. We are also committed to passing on our knowledge and expertise to generations of future physicians through our Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman Fellowship Program.

Staff physicians work closely with referring primary care physicians as well as other subspecialty services including Surgery, Neurosurgery, Ophthalmology, Radiology, Nuclear Medicine, Nutrition and Podiatry to coordinate the diagnosis and management of complex endocrine diseases, including: 

• Pituitary and hypothalamus diseases 
• Adrenal disease
• Islet cell tumors
• Diabetes
• Lipid disorders 
• Thyroid disease including thyroid cancer and thyroid nodules
• Osteoporosis and other bone diseases
• Hyperparathyroidism and other calcium disorders
• Obesity

We accept patients referred by physicians as well as individuals who seek help directly.
