What Sets Us Apart

Specialists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital of New York at NYU Langone are experienced in diagnosing and treating babies and children with congenital adrenal hyperplasia, a group of inherited hormonal conditions. These conditions can affect growth, blood pressure, and sex characteristics. Without immediate treatment, babies with the most severe form are at risk for a life-threatening drop in blood pressure, or shock.

With prompt treatment and monitoring, most children with congenital adrenal hyperplasia can lead a healthy life. Our neonatologists, who treat newborns, and pediatric endocrinologists, who diagnose and treat hormonal conditions, offer personalized care for children with congenital adrenal hyperplasia. Our genetic experts, surgeons, and psychologists may also be involved in your child’s care.
