Pediatric Endocrinology Program617-726-2909
John Crawford, MD, Chief of the Pediatric Endocrine Unit from 1963 to 1990, was among the first physicians in the world to treat children with growth failure with human growth hormone. The unit remains dedicated to offering patients with growth disorders state-of-the-art evaluation and therapy. This includes opportunities for selected patients to participate in clinical trials. We work closely with the Genetics program for management of girls with Turner syndrome.
