Cystic Fibrosis in Children

Specialists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone are experienced at diagnosing and treating children with cystic fibrosis, a condition that affects the lungs and digestive system. Our experts develop a care plan that is shaped by your child’s changing needs, with a focus on providing preventive and timely treatment that helps to maintain the best quality of life.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has accredited the Pediatric Cystic Fibrosis Center, as well as our Adult Cystic Fibrosis Center, based on the quality of care our physicians provide, from infancy through adulthood. Our accreditation is also based on our ability to coordinate care among a team that includes pulmonologists, nurses, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, dietitians, and social workers.

Cystic fibrosis is a lifelong condition, and living with it can be challenging for your child and family. Our doctors have expertise in treating all aspects of this condition, and can help you and your child manage any medical or other concerns that may arise. They can show you how to help prevent infections and offer treatment to help open airways and improve digestion.
