His main private practice is at the Nuffield Health Guildford Hospital but he also has monthly clinics at Spire Clare Park Hospital in Farnham. Professor Russell-Jones has extensive experience in the diagnosis, treatment and management of all endocrine disorders including diabetes, thyroid and parathyroid disorders, pituitary disorders including pituitary tumours and acromegaly, adrenal disorders including Addison’s disease and polycystic ovary syndrome.
The endocrine system is a system of glands, each of which secretes a type of hormone into the bloodstream to regulate the body. Hormones are substances (chemical mediators) released from endocrine tissue into the bloodstream that attach to target tissue and allow communication among cells. Hormones regulate many functions of the body, including mood, growth and development, tissue function and metabolism.
The major endocrine glands include the pineal, pituitary, thyroid, adrenal, pancreas, ovaries and testes.
All endocrine conditions are treated, including but not exclusively:
- Adrenal disorders, including Addison’s disease
- Failure to thrive
- Growth disorders
- Growth hormone deficiency
- Neuroendocrine tumours
- Ovary and testes, including polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
- Parathyroid disorders
- Pituitary disorders including acromegaly and pituitary tumours
- Thyroid disorders
We offer on site scanning including ultrasound, state of the art CT and MRI imaging, nuclear medicine scanning (close proximity) and bone density scanning (close proximity). We also perform on site dynamic function testing.
Should surgery be necessary we refer to top endocrine surgeons where appropriate.
We welcome calls from medical practitioners for impartial, professional advice on any medical aspect of endocrinology.
