UCLA Pediatric Endocrinology


Growth Disorders Program

UCLA Pediatric Endocrinology.


Children and adolescents with disordered patterns of growth are comprehensively evaluated in our clinics at UCLA. We have extensive experience in evaluating and treating patients with growth disorders from around the world. We manage all FDA-approved indications for growth hormone, including idiopathic short stature (ISS) and provide specialized care to patients with growth failure in addition to offering the latest treatment modalities. 

Our physicians have been investigators on growth hormone studies in various conditions, as well as authors of multiple reviews on growth hormone action and use in children. We have participated in growth hormone surveillance trials. UCLA physicians also pioneered and established the use of growth hormone monitoring tools and are at the forefront of new applications for growth hormone therapy.
