Division of Pediatric Rheumatology

The pediatric rheumatology division at the NYU Langone Medical Center is devoted to the complete care of children with rheumatic disease.

In conjunction with our multi-disciplinary therapeutic team of specialists we treat children with a variety of rheumatologic conditions including Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), systemic lupus erythematosus, juvenile dermatomyositis and others.

Through early diagnosis and appropriately intensive treatment we aim to control the disease process as quickly and safely as possible with the ultimate goal of returning children to full physical functioning if possible.

We are currently expanding our clinical services, with clinics at the Hospital for Joint Diseases, Bellevue Medical Center and Woodhull Medical Center.

In addition to our clinical services, we are also committed to the continued formal education of residents, fellows and medical students, as well as the general public with our community outreach programs though various organizations.

In order to better understand childhood-onset rheumatic disease we have an interest in translational clinical research which we are pursuing in at the Seligman Center for Advanced Therapeutics.

We are committed to our patients and their families, and through our clinical services, teaching and research, we hope to gain a better understanding of childhood rheumatic disease in order to provide even better care in the future.
