The Pediatric Heart Center and the Pediatric Subspecialty Center, both programs of Hasbro Children's Hospital, offer a comprehensive clinic for the evaluation and treatment of patients who have hyperlipidemia. Our lipid clinic is unique because it is multidisciplinary and we involve the patient's family when designing individual treatment plans. All of the clinic's services are available at one convenient location.
The focus of the lipid clinic is inherited (familial) hyperlipidemia. We have an experienced nutritionist and exercise physiologist on our team to provide nutrition and exercise prescriptions for each patient. There is also an onsite laboratory for blood work, when necessary.
Endocrinologist Charlotte Boney, MD, pediatric cardiologists James Ziegler, MD, and Sara Ford, MD, collaborate with Pediatric Heart Center staff to accommodate families and design individual treatment plans for each patient.
