What Sets Us Apart

Specialists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone are experienced in diagnosing and treating adolescent girls with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This condition increases the production of androgens, which are hormones such as testosterone.

Our team of endocrinologists, nutritionists, and psychologists collaborate to provide personalized care for your daughter. Early diagnosis and treatment can help reduce symptoms, including irregular menstrual periods and excessive facial and body hair. It can also help prevent complications during adulthood, such as infertility and type 2 diabetes.
