Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, our Bleeding Disorders Program is one of only 130 comprehensive hemophilia treatment programs of its kind in the country and one of five in Texas. We actively manage care for more than 175 children annually with inherited and acquired bleeding disorders and evaluate nearly 100 children for these disorders every year. These include hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, qualitative platelet disorders such as Glanzmann’s thrombasthenia, bleeding associated with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and other rare factor deficiencies.
From genetic counseling and early diagnosis – including prenatal care for mothers during pregnancies – through ongoing education, our team works closely with families and care providers such as dentists, ENT, orthopedic and general surgeons to prevent bleeding complications during childhood.
Comprehensive Bleeding Disorder Clinics are held most Wednesday at the Dallas campus. We have quarterly clinics at the Legacy campus nearby in Plano.
New patients needing evaluation for bleeding or clotting disorders can be seen on any day of the week.
