Hemophilia treatment center providers help persons with clotting disorders better understand and manage their medical condition. Many primary care providers manage patients with blood clots. However, if a patient has or has had a blood clot, it is recommended that they are also seen by a hematologist who specializes in the area of bleeding and clotting disorders.
HEMATOLOGISTS TREATING THROMBOSIS
Hematologists are an essential part of the hemophilia treatment center healthcare team. A hematologist accurately identifies and diagnoses clotting abnormalities that may contribute to the development of a clot. Accurate diagnosis is essential to the health of patients and families.
Hematologists have extensive experience in the management of anticoagulation. Appropriate choice of an anticoagulant and the level and length of anticoagulation are based on each patient’s diagnosis and individual circumstances.
