Chronic Disease

When your child faces a chronic disease, you want to build a relationship with healthcare providers you can trust. This partnership will help you and your child cope with the stresses and challenges in the years to come.

Doctors in the Pediatric Chronic Disease Section want to help your family see more success than setbacks in battling your child's chronic disease. We offer comprehensive services for children with chronic illnesses and long-term disabilities, including:

  • Cerebral palsy and Down syndrome
  • Asthma and chronic pulmonary diseases
  • Sickle cell disease
  • Diabetes

Our multidisciplinary care team has extensive expertise working with children with long-term diseases. Our staff includes pediatric chronic disease specialists, child psychologists, physical therapists, nutritionists, social workers, nurses, and other professionals. Together, we can help manage the chronic condition so that your child can reach his or her full potential.

Many of our chronic disease services are provided by Comer Children's physicians at La Rabida Children's Hospital.
