Our providers from Pediatric Endocrinology and Pediatric Nephrology work collaboratively to create personalized care plans for patients of all ages, from infants to children to young adults. Providers from Genetics, Pediatric Neurology and Physical Therapy provide consults as needed. We also collaborate with specialists throughout MGHfC and Massachusetts General Hospital, including Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, Adolescent Medicine and Pediatric Orthopaedics.
Each child’s care plan is shared with primary care providers, appropriate specialists and, most importantly, the child and family to ensure the highest quality of care. We believe that families know their children best, so we involve the family in each step of a child’s care plan. Our clinic also facilitates a seamless transition from pediatric to adult care for older adolescents to ensure ongoing care for their bone health.
The divisions of Pediatric Endocrinology and Pediatric Nephrology at MGHfC have a rich tradition of basic and translational scientific investigation in bone metabolism and mineral ion homeostasis.
Our seminal findings at MGHfC include the definition of the genetic basis of numerous inherited disorders and exploration of their underlying physiology and the elucidation of the impact of acquired disorders, such as anorexia nervosa and chronic kidney disease, on childhood bone accrual and metabolism.
This tradition continues today. Ongoing studies by our physician scientists include:
