Benign Blood Disorders

A World Leader in the Treatment of Pediatric Blood Disorders

While NewYork-Presbyterian is known as a world leader in the care of children with cancer, we are also renowned internationally for the care of those with benign (noncancerous) blood disorders. In fact, NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children's Hospital is the preeminent center in the New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut area for treating children with benign blood disorders. We carefully assess your child, make an accurate diagnosis, and develop a customized treatment plan to keep your child healthy.
