The adult sickle cell clinic provides comprehensive care to adults with sickle cell disease. This includes a comprehensive medial exam, laboratory evaluations, psycho-social evaluation and support, and focused education and teaching. Visits are scheduled every 3 to 6 months. The clinic will focus on explaining sickle cell disease and its complications. We focus on recognizing and avoiding future medical problems. Additionally, we provide education about new medical research and treatments in the field. The attending hematologist is Drs. Cindy Leissinger, Chancellor Donald and Amy Kinzie. There are few adult hematologists in the states, We are lucky to have 3 hematologists at Tulane, who see patients from all over Louisiana.
