    Hemophilia

    Our clinic offers multidisciplinary care for children and young adults with mild to severe forms of hemophilia. We offer leading-edge treatments, extensive education and home care services to encourage independence and improve quality of life.

    Thrombosis

    We are one of the few centers in the nation that specializes in pediatric care for clotting disorders. Our team of hematologists, interventional radiologists, nurses, social workers and school intervention specialists work together to ensure that patients receive the  best care.

    Other Bleeding Disorders

    Cincinnati Children’s also provides extensive diagnostic and therapeutic services for patients with other complex bleeding disorders, and for those with less severe bleeding disorders and platelet disorders, such as von Willebrand disease. Our hematologists and other health professionals work together to ensure that patients receive comprehensive care and enjoy the highest quality of life possible.

    Young women in particular benefit from the Young Women with Bleeding Disorders Clinic at Cincinnati Children’s. The clinic is designed for patients who are experiencing menorrhagia, or excessive menstrual bleeding. Most of these patients have von Willebrand disease or a mild bleeding disorder.

    Cincinnati Children’s also offers a general hematology clinic at our Liberty Campus. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 513-636-8790.
