The Center’s innovative, patient-tailored treatment approach may include minor surgery or medications such as topical and oral antibiotics, vitamin A analogues, and anti-TNF biologics. Laser and/or plastic reconstructive surgery may be involved in severe cases. Services for weight loss and smoking cessation (both known to exacerbate HS), pain management, and a support group for patients living with HS will also be integrated into the program.

The HS Treatment Program, located at the Montefiore Hutchinson Campus (Hutchinson Metro Center, 1250 Waters Place), accepts patients on alternate Monday mornings beginning Monday, April 13. Patients who wish to make an appointment, and physicians interested in referring patients or becoming involved in the Center, should contact Dr. Lowes (mlowes@montefiore.org) or Dr. Cohen (srcohen@montefiore.org).
