University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center’s Adult Sickle Cell Disease Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio, offers complete care for adults in northeast Ohio with sickle cell disease. Sickle cell disease is an inherited anemia named for the unusual shape of red blood cells found in people with this disease. In addition to providing advanced medical care, the Adult Sickle Cell Disease team participates in local and national research projects on sickle cell, and participates in national and international meetings on the disease.

People with sickle cell disease have to deal with pain from the disease and with frequent hospital visits to treat this pain and other complications of the disease. Patients with sickle cell disease may also suffer from heart, blood vessel, lung, brain and kidney damage. The number of health problems and doctor visits to address these problems can be overwhelming for both patients and their families. Their fellowship-trained, board-certified specialists understand the challenges for people with sickle cell disease. We provide comprehensive care to patients with this chronic illness in one location. Clinical specialties such as pulmonology (lung), cardiology (heart), pain management, and gynecology all provide clinical services through our adult multidisciplinary clinic.
