Endocrinology is a branch of medicine that studies the endocrine system which is responsible for secreting different hormones throughout your body. Most hormones are delivered through the blood stream, but there are several organs and glands that secrete these hormones for which endocrinologists specialize. Orlando Regional Medical Center assists referring physicians in the diagnosis and management of a variety of endocrinological disorders.
