What Sets Us Apart

Doctors at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone are experts at addressing the special needs of children with lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease that causes the body to attack its own tissues. Although there is no cure for the condition, early identification and treatment can prevent and relieve symptoms—such as severe joint pain, fever, rashes, and extreme fatigue.

When necessary, our doctors collaborate with a team of specialists who are experienced in managing complications of lupus, such as kidney disease and infections.
