The Vanderbilt Hemostasis Clinic takes a team approach to care for children with inherited bleeding disorders. Patients and families have access to doctors, nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists, counselors, and others. In short, we treat the whole child and encourage family support and education.
The clinic emphasizes prevention and offers services for patients with bleeding disorders including:
- Hemophilia A and B
- Von Willebrand Disease
- Other rare clotting factor deficiencies such as Factor II, V, X, VII, XI, and XIII
- Congenital platelet disorders such as Glannzman’s thrombasthenia, Bernard-Soulier
The Vanderbilt Hemostasis Clinic is one of four federally funded Hemophilia Treatment Centers (HTCs) in Tennessee. Our clinic is also part of a network of about 140 HTCs in the United States.
National studies show that children treated at HTCs spend less time in the hospital, less time away from school, and have lower health care costs. We also offer many opportunities for our patients to participate in current research.
Our Hemostasis Clinic follows federal guidelines for the delivery of comprehensive hemophilia services as developed by the Maternal Child Health Bureau (MCHB), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF).
