Our Team

Our multidisciplinary team is made up of board-certified pediatric hematologists, hematology-trained nurse practitioners and physician assistants, research staff and social workers. In addition, we offer psychological support and counseling services to help families cope with difficult social, emotional and financial issues brought on by the disease’s medical complications, especially debilitating pain crises. Texas Children’s Sickle Cell Program offers excellent ambulatory services, including outpatient blood transfusion and pain treatment programs, a sickle cell pulmonary clinic, sickle cell stroke clinic and genetic counseling, all in one location. When it’s time for patients to transition to adult sickle cell care, we continue to provide support through our affiliation with Baylor College of Medicine.
