Endocrinology Care

At NorthShore, we offer a multidisciplinary approach that works to address all aspects of endocrine care. Our team of board-certified endocrinologists collaborates with your primary care physician, highly trained endocrine surgeons, neurosurgeons, radiologists and radiation oncologists to provide you with the best care for your specific endocrine condition.

We perform advanced diagnostics including biopsy and molecular testing for thyroid nodules, and advanced hormonal testing for function of other endocrine glands such as adrenal and pituitary. As a patient, you can expect continuous care from diagnosis to recovery, during which your care team uses our secure electronic medical records system to make sure each team member is up-to-date on your care plan. 

Diabetes Care

At NorthShore we believe in a team approach to the diagnosis and treatment of endocrinology diabetes, with the patient as the most important member of the team. Your team is led by your diabetes endocrinologist and may also include skilled nurse practitioners, dietitians and nurses who specialize in diabetes education and care.

Our patients will be provided with the latest technology that their team deems appropriate for them, including insulin pumps and glucose sensors, as well as educational tools on how to monitor diabetes on a daily basis. By providing self-care options and working closely with primary care physicians, our staff’s goal is to create a healthier lifestyle for our patients, in which they can manage their diabetes comfortably and independently.

Research and Innovation

NorthShore’s team of endocrinologists remains in the forefront of research through participation in clinical trials of new medications and technologies, as well as novel clinical trials in personalized medicine to examine the DNA architecture that underlies all forms of diabetes. Findings from the trials have the potential to vastly improve diagnosis and treatment for our patients and community.

In addition, we maintain a Diabetes Research Registry of patients who would consider participating in diabetes research. If you are interested in participating please email diabetesresearch@northshore.org.
