The Thrombosis Center at Cincinnati Children’s provides comprehensive, specialized care for children and young adults with thrombosis and thrombophilia, including deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and other clotting disorders. We also provide consultation and counseling to those who may be at risk for these diseases due to family history or other factors.

The Thrombosis Center is one of the few facilities in the United States specifically designed to provide comprehensive services for patients with clotting disorders. Our expert team of physicians, nurses and social workers provides early, accurate diagnoses, appropriate medical care and extensive patient education.

We also provide support for children and families dealing with thrombosis and thrombophilia. Our social workers play an important role by guiding families to community resources.

Ralph A. Gruppo, MD, director of the Hemostasis and Thrombosis Center, has dedicated his career to caring for children with clotting disorders. Gruppo and other physicians on the medical team participate in many national and international research studies and develop their own protocols. This work can provide patients with early access to new therapies that are not widely available.

Research that Leads to Innovation

Physicians and researchers at Cincinnati Children’s conduct clinical research projects in hopes of improving the lives and prognosis for children with thrombosis and thrombophilia.

We are at the forefront of innovative research and evaluation of new ways to treat thrombophilia.
