Endocrinology is the study of the endocrine system in the human body. The endocrine system is a complex grouping of hormone-producing glands, consisting of the pituitary, thyroid and parathyroid glands, the hypothalamus, pancreas, gonads and adrenal cortex that control bodily functions such as metabolism, body growth and sexual development.
The Department of Endocrinology at All Is Well Multispecialty Hospital provides comprehensive solutions for a wide spectrum of metabolic disorders. The Department of Endocrinology has been established and dedicated to patient care and research work in the field of endocrinology, metabolism and diabetes.
Endocrinologist deals with the diseases of the endocrine system. These diseases may relate to too little or too much secretion of a hormone, too little or too much action of a hormone, or problems with receiving the hormone.
Rather than limiting our services to treatment only, we believe in providing holistic services right from prevention and early detection of diseases. We aim to excel in the quality of services provided by us.
