Arkansas Children’s is the only hospital in Arkansas to diagnose, evaluate and treat children who have sickle cell disease. Your child is in good hands here at Arkansas Children’s. Here, the child will be surrounded with a care team who are experts in sickle cell disease.

The care team includes a:
• Haematologist (doctor who specialize in blood problems)
• Nurse practitioner (a nurse with extra training who can write prescriptions)
• Sickle cell specialty nurse
• Apheresis nurse (a nurse who specializes in machines that draw, separate and return blood)
• Social worker

Your child will have access to the most advanced care and treatments, including clinical trials. Our team will teach you and your child how to live with and manage this lifelong condition. When your child becomes an adult, our social worker will seamlessly transition his or her care to the adult sickle cell program at the University of Arkansas Medical Center.
