The Pediatric Hematology section of Columbia University Medical Center, New York Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital was one of the first programs in the United States dedicated to children and adolescents with blood disorders.

What makes our program different

Extensive experience in a wide range blood conditions

Our team currently cares for more than 500 patients with acute and chronic hematologic (blood) disorders, including anemia in its various forms, bleeding disorders, blood vessel abnormalities, bone marrow failure syndromes, clotting disorders, hemoglobinopathies and thalassemias (conditions which affect the shape or function of hemoglobin, one of the proteins that make up red blood cells), and other conditions of the blood.

Advanced diagnostic technology and treatment facilities

The Pediatric Hematology section has access to the state-of-the art diagnostic laboratories of the Special Hematology Laboratory and Laboratory of Personalized Genomic Medicine, which enables us to diagnose rare blood disorders that other centers might not detect and to deliver the appropriate individualized treatment for each patient.

The focus of the Pediatric Hematology section is to utilize our expertise and advanced resources to provide children with blood disorders, including sickle cell disease, with comprehensive care, intensive management of pain and complications, and access to a range of specialists and treatments.
