High professionalism and vast experience of endocrinologists enable them to cope with the most difficult endocrine cases. Today, Austrian clinics of endocrinology widely use innovative technologies, numerous research activities are carried out, allowing specialists in Austrian clinics to constantly develop in their professional field and provide a high level of treatment.
Diagnosis and treatment of endocrine diseases in Vienna
Answering the question of what an endocrinologist does, we can point out that the endocrinologist identifies the most appropriate solutions in terms of hormonal regulation of the body in each specific case, as well as measures to remove any disorders involving this function.
Addressing the functions of an endocrinologist in more detail, we can note that the endocrinologist examines functioning of the endocrine system, diagnoses current pathologies in it and treat them, as well as removes the disorders that occur under the influence of specific disease states. Thus, the endocrinologist treats both the disease itself and consequences arising therefrom. This includes correcting hormone balance, restoring normal metabolism, eliminating sexual dysfunctions etc.

In addition to the above list of diseases the departments of endocrinology in Austrian clinics also deals with the treatment of other pathologies. High professionalism and vast experience of endocrinologists enable them to cope with the most difficult endocrine cases. Today, Austrian clinics of endocrinology widely use innovative technologies, numerous research activities are carried out, allowing specialists in Austrian clinics to constantly develop in their professional field and provide a high level of treatment.
Endocrinologists in Austria are highly qualified specialists that constantly improve their skills in line with the highest international health care standards. Their professionalism and brilliant hospital facilities make it possible to successfully use innovative diagnostic technologies (ultrasound, densitometry, CT/MRI, radioisotope scanning, needle biopsy, hormone/biochemical blood tests, dynamic pituitary function tests etc.) and treat even the most complicated endocrine diseases.
The main therapeutic methods are based on the use of hormonal regulation medicines. An important role in Austria’s endocrinology tools plays physiotherapy techniques and special diets. Specialized professionals constantly collaborate with cardiologists, ophthalmologists, orthopedists, nephrologist, and so on. Such an integrated approach allows the Austrian physicians to consider the optimal treatment scheme for each patient.
Treatment of diabetes mellitus in Austria
Treatment of diabetes mellitus is done jointly by endocrinologists, nutritionists and cardiologists. Since endocrine gland pathologies lead to imbalance of other body systems, it requires performing diagnosis and treatment of concomitant diseases.
When treating diabetes, emphasis is put on heart diseases, obesity and other disorders. Before starting treatment of diabetes, a comprehensive examination is carried out, after which a complete course of therapy for primary and concomitant diseases is prescribed.
Surgical treatment of endocrine diseases – where necessary – is done using minimally invasive surgical techniques. This allows to reduce postoperative complications and the rehabilitation period.
In the case of treatment of a goiter (Graves’ disease), specialists prefer to use gentle treatment techniques in order to avoid loss of voice due to injury to laryngeal nerves that are located behind the thyroid gland. But if there is no way to avoid surgery (in the case of tumors or large goiters), it is done with careful monitoring of the state of nearby tissues.
Treatment of thyroid cancer is a joint work of endocrinologists and oncologists.
This disease is serious and complicated, as it does not manifest immediately, developing in a latent form. Only the nodes in the thyroid gland may indicate the presence of a tumor, and since the treatment of this disease depends entirely on the type, size and location of the tumor, the differential diagnosis of nodes is required. If timely addressing to specialists, diagnosis offers a chance to detect thyroid cancer at the earliest stages.
When treating this complicated disease, physicians take all measures to keep the gland and ensure maximum safety of nearby tissues.
Treatment of infertility, although is not solely an endocrinological problem, however, endocrinologists participate in the treatment same as gynecologists. Hormonal disorders in ovaries, pituitary and thyroid are now among the main causes of infertility.
In this case, the solution to the problem is hormonal therapy. This method allows to regulate hormonal balance in the female body and gives a chance for women of childbearing age to have a baby and give birth to healthy children.
Treatment of endocrine gland pathologies in children is a separate direction in endocrine pathology, and Austrian specialists have also achieved successes in this field. Thorough examination using the latest equipment, individual approach to therapy, and careful monitoring of the body state during therapy – all these measures allow not only to achieve significant progress in treating these pathologies in children, but also to prevent possible consequences of hormonal imbalance in the growing child’s body
