Every patient of the Pediatric Endocrine Unit has a personal endocrinologist. We work collaboratively with primary care physicians, other specialty caregivers, and—most importantly—patients and their families to deliver the highest quality of care.
Our physicians specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of all endocrine-related conditions of infants, children and adolescents, including:
At MassGeneral Hospital for Children, we know that the time of your child’s diagnosis and treatment is a very stressful one and we strive to provide an open, welcoming environment. We believe that no one knows a child as well as the parent does; parents, along with primary care providers, become our partners in a child's care and have an active voice in all treatment plans.
Our physicians specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of all endocrine-related conditions of infants, children and adolescents.

Pediatric Endocrine-Neuroendocrine-Sports Endocrine ResearchResearch within the Pediatric Endocrine-Neuroendocrine-Sports Endocrine Lab aims to further medical knowledge about common endocrine issues in athletes and girls with low-weight eating disorders. In particular, we focus our efforts on establishing findings that lead to the adaptation and improvement of medical care for female athletes and young girls and women with eating disorders.

Two physician scientists from MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC) have received pilot feasibility grants to conduct innovative preliminary research in the fields of pediatric gastroenterology, endocrinology and behavioral health.
This year, MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC) celebrated its 10th annual Research Day, an event that recognizes the pioneering research of investigators throughout the hospital whose discoveries help to better understand childhood health and disease.
A focus on the positive is the mindset behind a new coaching program in the Pediatric Residency and Fellowship programs at MGHfC. The coaching program aims to maximize the experiences of interns, residents and fellows by pairing them with providers who coach trainees on personal and professional goals.
Ether Day, a tradition started in 1945, is a day to recognize MGHfC and Mass General staff for their years of service to patients and the hospital's overall mission. Learn more about what MGHfC means to some of those providers and staff.
For years, doctors could not determine why Olivia Renzi, 17, was growing so rapidly. She was much taller than other children her age and wasn’t developing normally. In 2013, her mother knew something wasn’t right, so she brought her then 14-year-old daughter to MGHfC. Olivia was diagnosed with gigantism, a rare growth disorder, but the diagnosis taught her to tap into a source of inner strength she didn't know she had.
New research from MassGeneral Hospital for Children shows the benefits of estrogen replacement therapy for improving physiological and psychological outcomes in young females with anorexia nervosa.
Madhusmita Misra, MD, MPH, chief of Pediatric Endocrinology at MGHfC, has been elected to serve on the Board of Directors of the Pediatric Endocrine Society from 2016-2016.
Childhood is a critical time for bone health. Approximately 90% of peak bone mass is acquired by age 18, with about 50% of this acquired during the pubertal growth spurt. As a pediatrician, my research goal is to better understand the factors which impact bone growth and mineralization during this important window in order to maximize long-term bone health.
