Patient Navigation Help Individuals Manage the Complexities of Sickle Cell Disease
The Adult Sickle Cell Disease Clinic at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center offers the benefits of a multidisciplinary clinic coordinated by a patient navigator. The patient navigator helps people with sickle cell disease manage this chronic condition.
Patient Navigator Coordinates Care
Our highly effective patient navigator helps patients navigate emotional, physical, and practical, day-to-day barriers to care.
- Supports and educates patients
- Assists patients in scheduling appointments
- Arranges transportation if needed
- Provides reminders and follow-up calls for patients
The patient navigator can help patients get to their appointments, ease their stress around health care, and improve the quality of patients’ lives.
Our Multidisciplinary Adult Sickle Cell Disease Clinic allows patients to meet with several different specialists and sub-specialists on the same day. In addition to seeing the sickle cell disease experts, patients will be able to meet with specialists in medicine and supportive care.
Specialty areas covered in the clinic include:
- Cardiology (heart)
- Pulmonology (lungs and respiratory system)
- Nephrology (kidney)
- Pain management
- Social work
- Music therapy

The adult sickle cell team holds four transition clinics throughout the year, together with experts in pediatric sickle cell disease from University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.
