Cystic Fibrosis Center

St. Louis Children's Hospital

Our comprehensive, fully accredited Cystic Fibrosis Center and affiliated clinics are premier clinical and research programs. Our commitment to excellence in patient care, teaching, and research is regularly recognized by our division’s inclusion as one of America’s best pediatric pulmonary services.

During the past academic year, the Cystic Fibrosis Center saw more than 500 pediatric and adult patients with cystic fibrosis, most of whom live within the St. Louis region in Missouri and Illinois. Located in the St. Louis Children’s Hospital, the Pediatric Cystic Fibrosis Center follows over 200 children and adolescents regularly. Our center is also involved in the care of patients with cystic fibrosis from across the United States who have been referred for or undergone lung or liver transplantation at our center. The center clinical staff includes nurse coordinators, dietitians, social workers, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other ancillary health personnel. A full complement of medical subspecialty consultants, including endocrinology, gastroenterology and surgical consultants are available, many of whom are actively involved in the program.
