Einstein-Montefiore Hematology and Sickle Cell Treatment

718-920-7373

The Children's Hospital at Montefiore offers the New York metropolitan region's only comprehensive center for the treatment of pediatric sickle cell disease. The center provides comprehensive treatment programs for pediatric thrombosis (blood clots) and family-centered treatment plans to help patients and families deal with sickle cell anemia while living healthier, more normal lives. Einstein-Montefiore sickle cell specialists also study and treat susceptibility to sickle-cell-related disorders in children, including stroke, pulmonary hypertension, organ damage, and chronic lung and kidney disease.

The Einstein-Montefiore pediatric sickle cell team works closely with Montefiore's Adult Bronx Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center, a national leader in research and treatment for adults with sickle cell disease.
