What Sets Us Apart

Specialists at Hassenfeld Children's Hospital of New York at NYU Langone have expertise in diagnosing and treating children and teens with von Willebrand disease, an inherited bleeding disorder that can be disruptive but is rarely life threatening.

Our hematologists use information from your child’s medical history, along with results of a physical examination and blood tests, to diagnose this condition and recommend the most effective treatments. Our doctors also partner with pediatricians and other specialists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital and in the community to reduce the risk of excessive bleeding, whether from surgery, dental procedures, injuries, or menstruation.
