What Sets Us Apart

Specialists at NYU Langone's Hassenfeld Children's Hospital of New York at NYU Langone are experienced in diagnosing and treating children with Graves' disease, an autoimmune condition that pushes the thyroid gland—and metabolism—into overdrive. Without treatment, the condition can lead to impaired vision and trigger an abnormal heart rhythm. 

Our endocrinologists work with radiologists specializing in thyroid imaging to make a diagnosis. A team of cardiologists, ophthalmologists, and other specialists collaborate to ensure that your child receives comprehensive treatment for symptoms of Graves’ disease.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Our doctors prescribe medications to temporarily or permanently reduce the production of excess thyroid hormones. They may prescribe additional medication to regulate your child's heart rhythm, which may be affected by Graves' disease, or to replace thyroid hormones after initial treatment.
