Our Endocrinology Program

Cano Health’s Endocrinology services are headed up by our Endocrinologist, Dr. Arnaldo Villa Franca III. He specializes in diabetes, obesity, thyroid disorders, osteoporosis and hormone malfunctions. Symptoms of endocrine disorders often take months or years to show up and can be easily overlooked by the patient. Many patients also suffer from other serious conditions, such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and circulatory problems. These often call for exacting and sophisticated medical techniques and careful monitoring by Endocrinologists from different fields. Of late, patients with lower than normal hormone readings of both testosterone and estrogen have sought out our endocrinology specialists, and they have been glad they did--as they have found their energy, vitality and balance restored.

We Can Help (Treatments/Procedures)

As a hormonal issue, endocrine disorders are about internal equilibrium. In many cases, endocrine disorders may be symptomless or mild enough to not require treatment. Symptoms can arise from excess hormone production or a hormone deficiency. When symptoms of endocrine disorders are bothersome, correcting the hormone imbalance can generally treat them. This is often done by means of synthetic hormone administration. Some endocrine disorders may call for greater measures such as surgery or radiation therapy. Often, diagnosis and treatment of the underlying cause of the endocrine disorder will resolve the symptoms. See a Cano Health Endocrinologist if you believe you are suffering from an endocrine disorder.
