Endocrinology | Torrance Memorial | South Bay


Specialized Care for Endocrine Disorders

At Torrance Memorial, we believe in caring for the whole patient and our staff of board-certified endocrinologists is committed to providing compassionate and collaborative care. Our endocrinologists partner with your primary care physician to provide an individualized management plan that supports your needs.


The endocrine system is a complex network of glands that produce and release hormones that play an important role in managing functions like metabolism, bone development, sleep patterns and reproduction. Hormone changes can lead to endocrine disorders like:

  • Adrenal disorders, including adrenal insufficiency, congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), and Cushing's syndrome
  • Diabetes
  • Growth disorders
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Lipid abnormalities
  • Osteoporosis and other bone and calcium metabolism disorders
  • Pancreatic hormone complications and tumors
  • Parathyroid
  • Pituitary diseases: diabetes insipidus, growth hormone deficiency and hypopituitarism
  • Thyroid diseases, including thyroid cancer, hyper and hypothyroidism

The most common health problem endocrinologists treat today is diabetes—it affects one in 10 adults in California. We believe that 99% of diabetes management is self-care, and we offer a wide range of treatment options that include diabetes education and management programs.
