Thrombosis and Hemostasis

Thrombosis & Hemostasis

Our team is dedicated to treat children with bleeding and clotting problems. Team includes physicians, nurses and social workers, with special interest in hemophilia and coagulation factor deficiencies. We also dedicate our care to children with clotting disorders. Beyond the care of children afflicted with these conditions, we also consider family education, social interactions among families of affected children, home care and support as the goal of our team to help parents and families with their inevitable emotional challenges.

We engage in ongoing research for developing innovative therapies and for addressing safety issues, e.g. complications or risks that may be associated with medications. We educate and mentor future trainees in diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents with bleeding and clotting disorders, and treatment.
