Chronic Lung Disease of Prematurity

Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone brings together a team of specialists experienced in treating babies with chronic lung disease of prematurity. This condition can occur in infants with underdeveloped lungs after they’ve had intensive treatment for breathing problems or severe lung infections. Our neonatologists, pulmonologists, and nurses collaborate to develop a plan that addresses all aspects of care for your baby. The goal is to help your infant breathe on his or her own, prevent lung infections, and ensure lung development.
