The outlook for a child with cystic fibrosis (CF) has never looked better. In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have greatly improved the lives of people with CF; many children with the condition can expect to live into their 40s and beyond.
How Boston Children’s Hospital approaches cystic fibrosis
The Cystic Fibrosis Center at Boston Children's is one of the oldest and largest cystic fibrosis centers in the United States. Caring for more than 600 children and adults each year, we provide services ranging from evaluation and diagnosis to treatment and patient education.
Our center is staffed by an experienced, multidisciplinary team of clinicians, all of whom have specialized training in the care of patients with cystic fibrosis. This approach ensures a thoughtful discussion of every treatment possibility in every case. Your child is in excellent hands with us.
