What Sets Us Apart

NYU Langone’s Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital provides family-centered, comprehensive care for children with sickle cell disease. This inherited blood disorder can cause painful episodes due to reduced blood flow to the limbs and organs and other potentially serious complications.

A team of NYU Langone experts—including pediatric blood, brain, and lung specialists as well as genetic counselors, physical and occupational therapists, social workers, and psychologists—cares for children with sickle cell disease and their families. They work together to ensure that your child’s immediate and long-term needs are met, every step of the way, throughout childhood and beyond.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Doctors at NYU Langone use medications, blood transfusions, sophisticated radiology tests, and a variety of supportive treatments to manage symptoms and prevent complications in children with sickle cell disease.
