UCSF Parnassus/Mt. Zion

For over 50 years, the Division of Endocrinology at UCSF Medical Center at Parnassus has been an international leader in both clinical endocrinology and basic endocrine research.

Our goals remain simple. We bring the questions and unknowns from our patient's bedside to the research laboratory, to not only help improve our understanding of disease process, but to bring about new therapeutic modalities. We then bring the advances of the laboratory back to our patients.

Members of our divisions are world recognized and distinguished in their research and treatment. Our clinics and staff handle a wide range of hormone disorders, both common and unusual cases, including thyroid disorders, pituitary disorders, adrenal disorders, calcium and bone disorders, diabetes mellitus (both type 1 and type 2), and lipid disorders. We also perform ultrasound guided biopsy of thyroid nodules. We collaborate with various excellent departments including Endocrine Surgery, Head and Neck Endocrine Surgery, Neurosurgery, Nuclear Medicine, Pathology, Radiology, and Radiation Oncology to serve and treat our patients.

Clinical services include:
