Support for Biliary Atresia

At Hassenfeld Children's Hospital of New York at NYU Langone, social workers, nutritionists, and other specialists are available to help your family manage your baby’s nutritional needs and any complications, such as infection, that arise after surgery for biliary atresia. You can also seek guidance and education about biliary atresia from our Sala Institute for Child and Family Centered Care while your baby is being treated in the hospital.

Follow-Up Care

Our doctors offer lifelong care for babies and children after diagnosis and treatment for biliary atresia. During follow-up exams, the doctor performs blood tests every three months to monitor your child’s liver, look for signs of infection, and adjust medications as your child grows.

Our social workers can offer advice about your child’s medication schedule. They also work with adolescents to ensure that they adhere to their medication regimen.

Nutritional Support

Biliary atresia can interfere with your child’s ability to absorb certain vitamins and minerals from food. Our registered dietitians can recommend a diet that includes the vitamins and minerals needed to ensure proper growth and development.
