Inova Endocrinology is a full-service endocrine practice with offices in Northern Virginia. Full-time consultation is also available at Inova Fairfax Medical Campus. Our board-certified and/or fellowship-trained specialists offer advanced skills and knowledge to provide patients with the highest level of care in diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of all endocrine disorders.
Endocrinology is the study of how hormones affect the body. Diabetes, for example, is a common but serious endocrine disorder caused by either a deficiency in the hormone insulin or a lack of insulin action. Our endocrinologists specialize in patients who have diabetes and have difficulty controlling their blood sugar.
Our physicians are also experts in diagnosing and treating disorders of the hormone-producing organs such as the thyroid, adrenal glands, parathyroids and pancreas. These organs can sometimes develop tumors that require more in-depth testing and study to determine if surgery is the appropriate treatment.
