About the Congenital Hyperinsulinism Center

The Congenital Hyperinsulinism Center at CHOP offers evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care for children with congenital hyperinsulinism (HI). Since most children’s hospitals only encounter one or two cases per year, it is important that children with this rare disease receive medical care from an experienced team. Our Center cares for an estimated 80 percent of children in the United States who require surgery for HI.

Our team of experts include pediatric endocrinologists, surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, anesthesiologists, advanced practice nurses, nurses, social workers, researchers, speech and feeding therapists, and dieticians—all working together to provide specialized, patient-centered and seamless care for children with congenital HI and their families.
