About the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Hypertension
The Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Hypertension at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) provides comprehensive diagnostic, treatment and educational services for adult patients with a broad spectrum of endocrine and metabolic disorders. Made up of hormone-producing glands that affect processes throughout the body, the endocrine system affects metabolism, mood, sexual function, reproduction and many other bodily functions. When these glands function improperly, patients develop a variety of conditions and diseases.
Under the leadership of Ursula B. Kaiser, MD, our specialized team of endocrinologists evaluate and manage the full range of endocrine and metabolic disorders, from adrenal and thyroid disorders and cancer to osteoporosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, diabetes, hypertension, obesity and more. In addition to caring for our patients, our physicians are also endocrine researchers, constantly seeking greater understanding of and therapies for endocrine diseases. Our physicians teach and train future endocrinologists through the BWH Endocrinology Fellowship Program.
