Oklahoma Heart Institute’s Division of Endocrinology endeavors to provide top level care in the field of Endocrinology. As the largest group of endocrinologists in the area, we have trained in Centers of Excellence from around the country; providing care in such diverse diseases as diabetes, thyroid disorders, hypertension, hyperlipidemia and osteoporosis.
In the area of diabetes, care consists of focusing on the individual needs of the patients; ranging from dietary management and oral medication to insulin and insulin pumps with continuous glucose monitoring systems. Patients are encouraged to become very active participants in the management of their disease, and they are followed closely in an attempt to prevent serious complications from developing from their diabetes.
Thyroid disorders are handled uniquely well at Oklahoma Heart Institute, where patients can not only take advantage of the physician’s training in thyroid diseases, but also our skills in diagnostic ultrasound with needle biopsy, nuclear medicine diagnosis and treatment of thyroid diseases both benign and malignant.
Our endocrinologists are also involved in the care of patients with hypertension and hyperlipidemia. We focus on preventing the onset or progression of major cardiovascular complications. This is accomplished by optimizing diet, exercise and medication.
Like most physicians at Oklahoma Heart Institute, the Endocrinology Division physicians are actively involved in the study of new therapies. This allows us to stay on the forefront of evolving care for diabetes, hypertension and lipid disorders.
In summary, Oklahoma Heart Institute’s Division of Endocrinology provides the highest quality of care for the highest quality of life.
