About the service

Our consultants work as part of the world-renowned Imperial Centre for Endocrinology and have some of the best results in the world for treating endocrine conditions. 

Endocrine conditions relate to the excessive or insufficient production of hormones, including diabetes and thyroid among others. At Imperial College Healthcare Private Care, we can help you with these health issues. Many of our endocrinology consultants work as part of the Imperial Centre for Endocrinology, a world-renowned centre for the care of patients with hormonal problems.

Reaching a diagnosis

Together with our skilled radiologists and clinical chemists, we will be able to assess your hormonal problem quickly and accurately, with access to the Imperial Endocrinology Investigation Unit and state-of-the-art laboratory.

Once we have reached a diagnosis for your endocrine condition, a multi-disciplinary team (MDT) including endocrinologists, surgeons, pathologists and a radiologist will work together to create a care plan tailored to your individual needs. 

Before proceeding any further, we will spend as much time as you need to discuss the options to ensure that all your questions or concerns have been addressed.

Endocrine surgery

If you require surgery, our endocrine surgical unit is among the best in the world. We offer treatment for all major endocrine problems including thyroid disease, thyroid cancer, hyperparathyroidism, adrenal tumours and pituitary tumours. Our surgeons use cutting-edge and minimally invasive surgical techniques whenever possible, offering a less painful and quicker recovery.

Our team will ensure that your wellbeing remains central before, during and after surgery and that your health is carefully monitored throughout your treatment.

Research and innovation

Our endocrine surgeons and physicians are actively involved in cutting-edge research. The team share their clinical and academic expertise both nationally and internationally by actively being involved in teaching medical students and doctors throughout the world.
