Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center

Director: Victor Gordeuk, MD

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for sickle cell patients and to reduce the morbidity and mortality of the disease through high quality medical care, patient and community education, and research into new therapies. The Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center at the University of Illinois (CSCC) is committed to providing the highest quality, state of the art, compassionate care to children and adults.  This is done utilizing a holistic approach to care that includes the latest treatment options available for disease and symptom management, participation in national clinical treatment trials, education and counseling for individuals with sickle cell disease and their families, and transition into adult care. Our comprehensive sickle cell program, one of the only adult sickle cell programs in Illinois, had over 25 years of experience in providing services to individuals with sickle cell disease.
