The Bristol-Myers Squibb Pediatric Rheumatology Center

Pediatric RheumatologyThe Bristol-Myers Squibb Pediatric Rheumatology Center is a leading, state-of-the-art rheumatology center for children and adolescents.

Pediatric rheumatic diseases are complex, chronic conditions with fluctuating courses that frequently go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. The disorders may affect growth, development, physical function and quality of life.

Early diagnosis and treatment is essential to properly manage these diseases to prevent long-term complications.

Our child-friendly and family-centered program provides comprehensive treatment, education and follow-up for pediatric patients with rheumatic diseases in Central New Jersey.
