What Sets Us Apart

Specialists at Hassenfeld Children's Hospital of New York at NYU Langone offer individualized care to children and adolescents with juvenile arthritis, a group of autoimmune conditions that cause joint pain, fever, and a variety of other symptoms.

Our rheumatologists—specialists in conditions that cause painful swelling in joints and muscles—diagnose your child based on the results of a detailed physical exam and create a treatment plan that aims to eliminate symptoms and prevent complications, such as joint damage or eye problems. Physiatrists, who are pediatric physical medicine specialists, at NYU Langone's Rusk Rehabilitation provide physical and occupational therapy designed to help your child stay active and engaged in the activities he or she loves.
