Cystic Fibrosis in Children

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is one of the most common genetic (inherited) diseases in America. It is also one of the most serious. It mainly affects the lungs and the digestive systems, causing breathing problems and problems digesting foods. It is a chronic disease that currently has no cure.

The CF Center at Stanford, located at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, is an integrated disease management program that follows patients from diagnosis through adulthood.

We are pleased to offer a dedicated multidisciplinary team to manage our patients. Our pediatric pulmonologists work closely with gastroenterologists, ear, nose and throat specialists, and endocrinologists to manage this complex disease.

Ours is the largest CF program in northern California. It is the only CF Foundation-designated Therapeutic Development Network (TDN) center in California, Nevada and Oregon (one of only two West of the Rockies). We participate as a national leader in clinical trials  and the development of novel therapies.
