The endocrinologists at Swedish are skilled in diagnosing and treating diseases of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands. We have a special interest in diabetes and osteoporosis.
Through thoughtful education and therapy, we can help patients reduce and even eliminate complications of diabetes. Our endocrinologists are committed to partnering with their patients to achieve these goals.
Osteoporosis is a bone disease. If left untreated, it can lead to fractures and deformities of the spine, legs and arms. Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent or reverse the effects of this crippling disease. Our endocrinologists have played an important role in bringing osteoporosis to the attention of the medical community, and they continue to lead efforts to treat this common cause of disability among the elderly.
