What Sets Us Apart

Doctors at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone are experts in diagnosing and treating children with arthrogryposis. This condition causes contractures—a permanent tightening, shortening, and flexing or fixation of joints and muscles.

Our orthopedic surgeons, physical and occupational therapists, neurologists, plastic surgeons, geneticists, and psychologists work as a team to develop a care plan for improving mobility, function, and strength tailored to each child. By working together they can provide your child with the very best care, while being mindful of your treatment preferences.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Our doctors use treatments such as splints and physical therapy to help children with arthrogryposis move more easily. In some cases, surgery may be recommended to correct joint, muscle, spine, and bone problems caused by the condition.
