Congenital Hypothyroidism

At Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone, doctors are experienced in diagnosing and treating congenital hypothyroidism, a condition that causes a partial or complete loss of thyroid function in newborns.

NYU Langone is a New York State Department of Health–designated care center for children with congenital hypothyroidism. Our specialists are equipped to act immediately if a routine newborn screening test reveals that your infant has congenital hypothyroidism.

Endocrinologists are doctors who specialize in treating disorders of the thyroid and other endocrine glands. They work with our radiologists and pediatricians to rapidly diagnose this condition and to ensure babies receive the treatment they need to prevent complications that can affect growth or brain development.

Doctors at NYU Langone also diagnose and manage hypothyroidism in adults.
