Conditions Treated

  • Bleeding Disorders

    Bleeding disorders are conditions in which a person’s body does not stop bleeding normally. A person with a bleeding disorder does not have the platelets or clotting factors his or her body needs to make blood clot, or coagulate. The two most common bleeding disorders are hemophilia and von Willebrand disease.
  • Hemophilia is a rare hereditary condition that prevents the blood from clotting properly. People who have hemophilia usually bleed longer when they are injured, and they may develop internal bleeding, which can become life-threatening.
  • Hepatitis C is an infectious, often chronic (long-lasting) disease in which the liver becomes inflamed.
  • HIV infection is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The virus attacks and gradually destroys the immune system, making it harder for the body to fight infections. 
  • Von Willebrand Disease

    Von Willebrand disease is a bleeding disorder, almost always inherited, that affects the blood’s ability to clot. Symptoms vary depending on which type a person has and include frequent or prolonged nosebleeds, heavy menstrual periods, blood in urine or stool, and large bruises from minor bumps or injuries.
