Comprehensive Care


Multidisciplinary Team

The key to obtaining optimal outcomes for patients with Sickle Cell Disease is enrollment in a program of specialized comprehensive care provided by a multi disciplinary team of providers with expertise in Sickle Cell Disease.

At the Center, comprehensive care includes extensive patient and family education; psychosocial support; and periodic medical evaluations to review disease manifestations; document important baseline physical findings and laboratory values; monitor nutrition, growth, development, and educational achievement; and detect early signs of organ damage. In addition, patients are periodically evaluated for specific therapies such as chronic transfusions, Hydroxyurea, or bone marrow transplantation.
