We offer personalized care in all of our programs to help your child with all aspects of development.

Addressing the unique needs of your child

Hormone imbalances impact numerous systems, development (including growth, sexual development, hand-eye coordination, speech and social skills) and physical appearance. Our team of specialists addresses four main areas:

  • General endocrinology – This program covers multiple diseases with hormone imbalances that impact growth and development.
  • Diabetes – This program offers care for type 1 and type 2 diabetes, including daily maintenance and education.
  • Gender Education and Care Interdisciplinary Support (GENECIS) – This program provides access to gender-affirming care and support for psychological and social-emotional needs. GENECIS also provides education/training for providers, educators and community partners, and research to improve health and development.
  • Center for Obesity and its Consequences in Health (COACH) – This is the only comprehensive program for childhood obesity in North Texas. It focuses on reversing obesity and its effects on overall health.

Patient care is truly individualized

A child’s disease doesn’t define them, but still, many children and families can feel lost during the treatment process. We realize that no two children are the same, and that each child is impacted differently. This patient-focused philosophy is backed by our history of putting children first for over 100 years. 

At Children’s Health, you and your family will receive personalized education and training tools to help manage your child’s condition. You will have the opportunity to attend disease- or treatment-specific classes, for topics such as growth hormones and diabetes, that explain the disease or treatment, possible side effects, and medication administration and management. 

Providing answers for childhood hormone imbalances

The endocrinology department studies, diagnoses and provides treatment plans to address hormone disorders. Our team is comprised of specialists with a wide range of expertise. We know hormone-related diseases have medical and social impacts. We’ll be with you and your child every step of the way, answering your questions and empowering your child to take charge of their care.
