What Sets Us Apart

NYU Langone’s Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital brings together a team of specialists experienced in treating babies with chronic lung disease of prematurity. This condition can occur in infants with underdeveloped lungs after they’ve had intensive treatment for breathing problems or severe lung infections. Our neonatologists, pediatric pulmonologists, and nurses collaborate to develop a plan that addresses all aspects of care for your baby. The goal is to help your infant breathe on his or her own, prevent lung infections, and ensure lung development.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Treatment for babies with chronic lung disease often includes oxygen therapy and respiratory support with new, sophisticated ventilators. Additional care is tailored to your baby’s needs and may include medication and nutritional support.
