Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a genetic disease that primarily affects African-Americans. It creates red blood cells that have an abnormal “sickle” shape instead of a normal disc shape. Sickle cells carry less oxygen and can interrupt healthy blood flow, eventually leading to tissue and organ damage. The Sickle Cell Clinic at Froedtert Hospital provides comprehensive care for adults with sickle cell disease.
Patients receive ongoing care including drug management and pain management. Infusion services, including automated red cell exchange, are overseen by a physician who is board-certified in transfusion medicine. Patients manage all their acute health concerns through the clinic, without the need to go to a hospital emergency room, in most cases. All patients receive education, coaching and follow-up support. The adult Sickle Cell Clinic also partners with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin to ensure a smooth transition from pediatric to adult care. The E.A.S.E program (Empower Adolescents with Sickle Cell Disease to Effectively Transition) helps prepare patients for their new role as independent adults managing their disease.
