Sickle Cell Disease in Children

Experts at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone provide family-centered, comprehensive care for children with sickle cell disease. This inherited blood disorder can cause painful episodes due to reduced blood flow to the limbs and organs and other potentially serious complications.

A team of experts—including blood, brain, and lung specialists as well as genetic counselors, physical and occupational therapists, social workers, and psychologists—cares for children with sickle cell disease and their families. They work together to ensure that your child’s immediate and long-term needs are met, every step of the way, throughout childhood and beyond.
