Pediatric Graves' Disease is an autoimmune disorder, a disease in which the immune system attacks healthy organs or tissue (in this case, the thyroid). It is a major cause of hyperthyroidism in children and adolescents.
Conditions We Treat
Hyperparathyroidism occurs when the glands make too much PTH. When this happens, there is too much calcium in the blood.
Pediatric Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which the body produces too much thyroid hormone, which greatly increases the body’s metabolism. Prolonged exposure to high levels of thyroid hormone can pose serious health problems to children.
Learn more about pediatric hypoparathyroidism, a condition in which a child’s calcium levels are too high because of an overproducing parathyroid gland.
Pediatric Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is underactive and produces an insufficient amount of thyroid hormones. It is the most common thyroid disorder affecting children.
Pediatric multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) is a group of disorders that adversely affects your child’s endocrine system (the system that produces hormones). Children with MEN typically have tumors in at least two endocrine glands.
A goiter is an abnormal enlargement of the thyroid gland. A multinodular goiter is made up of multiple thyroid nodules. The exact cause of multinodular goiter is unknown.
Thyroid cancer is cancer of the thyroid gland, an organ at the base of the neck that produces hormones that help control heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and weight.
The goal of the Thyroid Center care team is to consolidate patient care with strictly pediatric providers so as to optimize patient outcomes and maximize the efficiency of care.
Pediatric Thyroid Nodules are growths or lumps in your thyroid gland. Most thyroid nodules are benign, which means they are not cancerous; however, in some children, they are an indication of thyroid cancer.
Thyroiditis, also known as Hashimoto’s disease, is an autoimmune disorder -- a disease in which the immune system attacks healthy organs or tissue (in this case, the thyroid). It is a major cause of hypothyroidism in children and adolescents.
