Comprehensive Sickle Cell CenterBreaking the Sickle Cycle

Right here in Memphis, we have one of the largest populations of sickle cell patients in the country. For these patients, daily life is often interrupted by unpredictable bouts of pain that last a few hours to many weeks – threatening their family life, career, education and social life.  The Methodist Healthcare Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center provides a preventive outpatient clinic and Memphis’ first dedicated emergency infusion unit. The Center is focused on delivering treatment advance through on-site research.  We are committed to providing continuity of care that will help enhance the quality of life for sickle cell disease patients across the Mid-South.
