Endocrinology is the study of your body’s hormone system (endocrine system). Our endocrinologists in the Division of Endocrinology at Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City (SSMC), Abu Dhabi, in partnership with Mayo Clinic, diagnose, treat and manage several different conditions that affect your endocrine system. They offer expert care for a spectrum of metabolic, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal and diabetes-related conditions.
We offer the latest assistive technologies for diabetes management, including Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGM). These are devices fitted with safety measures that are applied to the skin of the arm or abdomen to monitor blood glucose levels continuously, reducing the incidence of severe hypoglycemia and providing real-time glucose feedback. We also provide devices for insulin administration. These are pumps that continuously administer precise insulin doses.
Care of the Critically Ill Surgical Patient (CCrISP) is a two-day, interactive course, which includes mandatory, pre-course e-learning. It covers the practical skills and knowledge that health care professionals need to effectively care for surgical patients, including those who are deteriorating or at risk of doing so.
